A new, blended online learning programme

The Fundamentals of Palliative Care programme is designed for any healthcare worker, registered and non-registered staff caring for people with a palliative care need.  Being educated about palliative care will help you improve the assessment and outcomes for people in your care, their family and whanau, as well as yourself and other healthcare workers.

Following a recent review, work commenced to make the Fundamentals programme available to a wider audience. Hospice New Zealand, in collaboration with its member hospices is excited to offer a new blended online learning Fundamentals of Palliative Care programme, for participants to enrol in.
