Situation analysis

We partner with Palliative Care Queensland to conduct a comprehensive situation analysis of community palliative care in our region through stakeholder and consumer engagement.

Building the palliative care workforce

We work to increase the capacity of nurses in our region to respond to palliative care needs in the community.

We provide funding to a number of registered nurses to complete a Master of Nurse Practitioner, specialising in palliative care or a Graduate Certificate in palliative care.

Developing a knowledge framework

We partner with Metro North Hospital and Health Service to develop a knowledge framework to support health professionals and professional care givers in establishing their baseline end of life knowledge needs.
