Palliative care is a speciality area which requires special skills and training.  Education, training and support is available for palliative care workers.

The education program offers continuing education to Department staff, other health professionals and to community members.  Through our affiliation with University of Tasmania we teach undergraduate and post graduate medical and nursing students.

The specialist palliative care teams in each region are also able to provide education sessions upon request. Please contact your local service for details.

For other short courses, formal university qualifications, web based learning modules and palliative care conferences refer to the CareSearch website.
