The Program of Experience in the Palliative Approach (PEPA) aims to improve palliative care by increasing the skills and confidence of health professionals caring for people with life-limiting illnesses, and their families.

Topics:

  • How cultural values and world views affect experience and expectations of palliative care;
  • How to elicit culturally significant information in a sensitive way;
  • How to plan for the culturally relevant needs of clients, families, and friends; and
  • How to identify when a communication problem is occurring and apply effective strategies to resolve it.

Facilitators:

Dr Hung Nguyen

The workshop will be presented in partnership with Palliative Care Victoria and will be delivered by Dr Hung Nguyen. Dr Nguyen works as a General Practitioner in multicultural Glen Waverley. He has extensive clinical and teaching experience in cross-cultural medicine.
