Hospice New Zealand Fundamentals of Palliative Care

Lake Taupō Hospice will be running the Fundamentals Programme in 2019. This workshop series will commence on the 15th August 2019.  We will be delivering two sessions per education day with the morning session running from 10.30 am – 12.30 pm and an afternoon session running from 1 pm – 3 pm. The Pain and Symptom Management session is an exception and is a 3 hour workshop. This workshop series can be completed in one year or over a number of years.

Bring your own lunch.  Morning and afternoon tea will be provided.

The goal of the Fundamentals packages is to improve and ensure quality and equity of palliative care services for all people and their families, regardless of care setting. The Fundamentals package consists of 10 flexible learning sessions primarily aimed at those working in aged care.

The learning packages includes:

  • Essence of palliative care
