Upcoming Events

Please note: In 2019 we have changed our formatting to shorter times to make sessions accessible to more people.

The sessions work as learning modules and participants will receive a certificate of attendance for each session for CPD purposes.

Each topic will be more intensive and focused on that particular theme, rather than covering the fundamentals of palliative care, as our other longer workshops used to.

The topics align with TAFE and other RTOs offering palliative care training as part of nursing and aged care courses.

PCT education sessions will enhance knowledge in this area, enable participants to stay updated on current resources and maintain confidence and best practice.

Cost for these sessions is now $40 for non-members or $30 for members.

Participants who attend 4 sessions during the calendar year will receive their 5th registration FREE.

PCT educators are now registered facilitators for Advance Care Planning Australia.
