QuoCCA Case-Based e-Learning Courses

The package provides evidence-based information and discusses attitudes toward caring for children with a life-limiting condition, and their families. Total learning takes approximately seven hours, depending on your prior knowledge and learning style.  It includes:

  • Paediatric Palliative Care (PPC) case studies - one for each of the referral criteria in PPC and one for sustainable practice
  • Neonatal case study
  • Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) case study

You can access the Case-Based e-Learning cources via the Paediatric Hub of the QUT Palliative Care Education and Training Collaborative.

To complete your professional development in PPC, it is recommended that you seek opportunities to practice communication skills involved in PPC practice through face-to-face workshops facilitated by experts in PPC across all Australian States and Territories.
