Palliative Care in General Practice Education Series

Thu 11th March @ 6:30 pm

Would you like access to specialist advice and knowledge on caring for a dying patient? The Palliative Care in General Practice ECHO Network is a live, on-line learning series that includes co-management of patient cases in an interactive environment. It will provide access to an interdisciplinary team of palliative consultants/specialists who will guide case discussion and present latest updates. Project ECHO can support you in your work through case-based learning. There is an opportunity for GPs to bring de-identified cases for advice and support and will also include short presentations on Caring for the Dying with this second session focussing on Care at the End of Life in an Aged Care setting.
