Palliative Care Education

 

Banksia Palliative Care (Banksia) provides high quality palliative care education via our Learning Centre Team. Through our education sessions, we empower clinicians, and members of the community with specific, specialist palliative care knowledge.  We believe that the more health professionals with capacity in this vital area, the more people who will receive the personalised care and treatment that will enable them to have dignity in death, whatever that looks like for that individual.

Our education is facilitated by highly trained and experienced Educators, with qualifications and expertise in all areas of palliative care.

Banksia works closely with a variety of organisations across Victoria to deliver vital education, including:

  • Residential Aged Care Facilities and DHHS Supported Residential Services,
  • Private and public health services,
  • Councils,
  • Culturally and Linguistically Diverse community groups,
  • Regional Palliative Care Consortiums.

Please contact our Learning Centre Team via email: learningcentre@banksiapalliative.com.au or call on 03 9455 0822 to chat about education for yourself, or your service/facility.

Banksia’s Learning Centre team have transitioned our education to a virtual platform (MS Teams) and are now able to offer multiple sessions to attendees regardless of your location.
