Making Choices for Life – Palliative Care Resources for Home Care workers
Making Choices for Life assists organisations and their in-home care workforce to develop skills to care for people with a life-threatening or life-limiting illness, or who are coming to the end of a normal ageing process, using a person-centered palliative approach.
LASA was successful in securing project funding from the Community Services & Health Industry Skills Council to develop these training resources for Certificate III Individual Support and Certificate IV Ageing Support care workers.
Making Choices for Life is primarily a training resource for use by trainers who are delivering CHCPAL001 Deliver care services using a palliative approach. The resource includes four videos and accompanying fact sheets (below) that can be used as visual aids and discussion points around the four themes within that unit of competency.
