PEPA has developed free online learning modules to support GPs in developing palliative care skills.

The Department of Health recently provided funding for PEPA (Program of Experience in the Palliative Approach) to work with PHNs to deliver a Palliative Approach Workshop for GPs. 

PEPA has developed free online learning modules to help GPs build their capacity and improve networks between themselves and specialist palliative care services. The modules have been developed by a team of palliative care experts and reviewed by clinicians with extensive palliative care experience, including current medical practitioners.

The online modules are supplemented by a face-to-face workshops happening in the region.
