Consultation begins for palliative care foundation training program

13 October 2023


The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) has opened consultation for the development of the National Palliative Care Foundation Training Program announced earlier this year.

PSA is seeking input from pharmacists and other key stakeholders to help inform the learning objectives and content for this training program.

PSA National President Dr Fei Sim FPS encouraged all pharmacists to submit their feedback.

“This foundation training program is about upskilling the most easily accessible health professional to support palliative care,” Dr Sim said.

“Upskilling pharmacists in palliative care will increase the capacity of palliative care teams to support people who have been diagnosed with a life limiting illness.

“I strongly encourage pharmacists, whether experienced or interested in palliative care or not, to share their views to help us create a training program that best serves the needs of patients, their families and palliative care multidisciplinary teams.”

Consultation for the National Palliative Care Foundation Training for Pharmacists closes on 17 November 2023.
