Our Hospice Education team is focussed on delivering palliative care education to Otago’s health and social services sector, with the aim of ensuring better palliative services at all areas of need.

The service is an integral part of the Hospice’s service, utilising the expertise of the Hospice’s specialist palliative care staff to deliver education sessions such as Palliative Care for Care Assistants, Fundamentals of Palliative Care, Syringe Driver Training and Night Carer Training.

Palliative care education is available to all GPs, District Health Nurses Allied Health Workers and Aged Residential Care workers as well as many students studying health-related subjects.

The education team  collaborates with the Otago University, Otago Polytechnic and Dunedin Hospital. They also run collaborative education study days with District Health Board’s Palliative Care Team.
