Venue: Virtual

Designed for: GPs and Locum services

Palliative and Supportive Care Education (PaSCE) are pleased to announce the launch of the Advance Care Planning for Residential Aged Care Workshops for 2021. These workshops are available to all staff in residential aged care facilities and provide tailored education for these staff to increase organisational advance care planning (ACP) knowledge.

The implementation of ACP practices within residential aged care facilities promotes compliance to the Aged Care Quality Standards (2019) Standards 1, 2 and 3 and the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards, ‘Partnering with consumers’ and ‘Comprehensive care’.


As any GP working in aged care is aware, palliative care is intrinsically linked with their practices. It is well recognized that that GPs play an essential role in ACP and palliative care in residential aged care facilities. This short session will aim to provide GPs with knowledge and tools to further evolve their palliative care and ACP practice.

This workshop supports the practitioner to meet the delivery of person-centred care, dignity and avoidance of suffering as expected by community.

“Community expectation of person-centred health care, self- determination, dignity and the avoidance of suffering, have focused attention on advance care planning. Nationally, The Palliative Care Strategy and The National Framework for Advance Care Directives, prioritise advance care planning and advance care directives. “(1)
