End-of-life essentials: education for allied health professionals

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

    Abstract

    Many allied health professionals will find they are providing services and care for Australians who are in the last year of life with little training on end-of-life issues. The majority of Australians will die in acute hospitals. Common challenges for any clinician include:
     Not knowing how to respond to patient questions ‘such as am I dying?’ or ‘what will happen to me?’
    • Being able to recognise and understand dying patterns
    • Negotiating goals of care with patients, families and other professionals
    • Working effectively in a team
    • Knowing what to do if patient suffering persists
