Our trainings are all about the power of communities to support each other and spread information. The more that we are all empowered with knowledge and skills, the more we can all help each other as a community.

We have two formal type of trainings where participants receive a certificate of attendance and provide specific education on roles that community members can play in palliative care. These are Last Aid and the PalliCommunity Connector training.

We also two informal conversations sessions, which provide information and promote discussion. These are Nurturing your Compassionate Community and PalliChat Conversations.

All trainings are free of charge.

If only I’d known all that before! It would have helped so much when I was caring for Dad.

I always used to worry about what to say to my Gramps, but now I feel able to help him and Nan and accept what’s happening

 

PalliCommunity Connector

This is a one and half-hour online or face to face training for community members, developed by Palliative Care Queensland and inspired by the Mendip Health Connector program in the UK and public health palliative care models in Kerala, India. We know many people in the community already play the informal role of a community connector by actively supporting and signposting their friends, family and neighbours to supports and service, this course builds on that in the space of loss, ageing, dying and grief.

At the end of the session participates will be able to:

  • Understand the principles of active listening and a compassionate ear
  • Know how to find palliative care supports within the region and how to signpost people to them
  • Understand the basic principles of encouraging people to ask for help, accepting help and what may be considered unhelpful help

Those that successfully complete the training will be invited to join our Brisbane South PalliCommunity Connector Network
