About this qualification

Course code: CHCSS00105

CHCSS00105 Palliative Approach Skill Set - Provide Support (Palliative Care) will provide students with the knowledge and practical skills required to support clients and the families of clients who require palliative care.

In addition to providing care during the final stages of life, palliative care helps the client to live well and comfortably, so that they can maintain good quality of life. It can be of benefit at the initial diagnosis, and at various times through the stages of an illness.

The workshop gives students the opportunity to engage with a subject matter expert (their trainer) and interact with other students.

These units provide credit towards a range of qualifications in the CHC Community Services Training Package at Certificate III and Certificate IV level.
