PEPA Program

PEPA prepares health professionals to deliver quality care for people who are dying. The program is unique in providing Australia's only free placements in palliative care services for practicing health professionals (2-5 days duration) and free palliative approach workshops. This video outlines the program in more detail and includes testimonials from mentors and past participants showing how PEPA is improving confidence, knowledge and skills of health professionals in the delivery of palliative care.

PEPA is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health. Funding is available as a contribution towards backfill (paid to your employer) and towards travel and accommodation costs for regional and remote participants. To find out more visit:
