Developing the Primary Palliative Care Workforce in Australia
Yates, Patsy (2007) Developing the Primary Palliative Care Workforce in Australia. Cancer Forum, 31(1), pp. 12-15.
Current healthcare models promote the equitable provision of palliative care to oncology patients with advancing disease, in the setting of their usual care, often in conjunction with anti-cancer therapies. This has resulted in specialist cancer services, as well as primary care across metropolitan, rural and remote communities, being called upon to integrate palliative care principles into their practice. To meet this increased demand for skilled health care professionals several national strategies have been initiated over the last five years. In this paper two projects are discussed in detail: the Palliative Care Curriculum for Undergraduates and the Program of Experience in the Professional Approach.
