Introduction to Education:
A key feature of our palliative care is providing education for healthcare professionals involved in palliative care within the Taranaki region. Throughout the year our team offers holistic education that is practical, theoretical and reflective, across the range of topics relevant to palliative care. Education is provided by Specialists from our Medical, Nursing, Support Services (Counselling, Social Work, Spiritual) and Cultural Liaison teams. Our education programs seek to not only build skills across networks but also to support a shared care approach.
