Practice Nurse Network Meeting – Palliative Care After Hours Tool & Voluntary Assisted Dying Update – Traralgon

February 25 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


This network meeting will discuss the Palliative Care After-Hours Triage Tool and provide an update on Voluntary Assisted Dying.

Session 1:

The Gippsland Region Palliative Care Consortium (GRPCC) have developed the After-Hours Triage tool to support generalist health professionals to deliver a consistent and evidence-based approach to symptom management for clients having palliative care.  This interactive session will look at the after-hours triage tool, and how it might be used in the primary health setting by practice nurses to provide information, support and advice to clients/patients.  Principles of telephone triage and assessment, and a brief overview of symptom management using the tool will be covered.  Session outline:

  • Provide information on the After-Hours Project plan
  • Consult with participants on what might need to be included in a modified tool for primary health
  • Discuss how palliative care looks in general practice and the referral triage tool
  • Update nurses on education available in the space of palliative care

Session 2:

Voluntary Assisted Dying 8 Months On – Voluntary assisted dying became legal in Victoria in June 2019. This update will explore some observations from the state-wide Navigator service with a focus on General Practice – what has been working well and what can be improved.
