Education for Aged Care Facilities

Banksia Palliative Care has been providing education to Aged Care Facilities and other providers for a number of years. We can tailor courses to suit your individual facility.

These sessions are being delivered virtually, as we have feedback that we are able to include more staff this way, but this is being constantly being reviewed. 

Please contact us for more information by phoning 9455 0822 or emailing us at learningcentre@banksiapalliative.com.au.
