The Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association have re-launched the Palliative Care Online Training Portal, funded by the Australian Government. 


The Portal provides free, non-clinical, interactive training to carers, community & aged care workers, students, volunteers, family members and clinicians who want to build their skills if they are caring for someone with a life-limiting illness.


To date this training has been delivered to over 35,000 people and covers topics such as:

  • the needs of people and their families as they approach end-of-life;

  • assessment skills;

  • end-of-life conversations;

  • self-care and building resilience;

  • pain management;

  • and recognising deteriorating patients.


The Palliative Care Online Training Portal is available at  


Registration is free and there are no time restrictions for completion of the modules.
