The Advance ProjectTM is a free evidence-based training package and suite of resources specifically designed to support GPs, nurses and practice managers to work as a team to initiate conversations about advance care planning and to assess patients’ and their carers’ palliative care needs.

The aim of the Advance ProjectTM practical workshop is to increase your skills and confidence in:
  • initiating conversations with older and/or chronically ill patients about advance care planning.
  • identifying and assessing the needs of patients, and their carer’s, who are palliative / end of life.
The members of the Gold Coast Hospital Service Specialist Palliative Care team will be conducting this face-to-face workshop. This will provide an opportunity for questions and answers to relevant topics related to individual patient care.

CANCELLATIONS: Online registrations will be confirmed immediately in our booking system. This is our preferred method of RSVP. To cancel your RSVP please use the email link or call the GCPHN events team (PH. 07 5635 2455). In recent months a number of registrants to our events have failed to attend and have not provided cancellation advice. This often results in others, often on wait lists, being unable to attend. In addition, GCPHN resources are wasted as costs for catering and support staff are still incurred. Each event therefore incurs a cost per person ranging from $65 - $120.  GCPHN wishes to continue to provide training and education at no cost to primary care providers, however for these reasons we may have to consider implementing fees to offset our costs in the future. Please ensure you provide at least 2 days’ notice if you need to cancel your registration 

COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION: GCPHN collects personal information for the purpose of assisting its activities and functions in the primary health care sector. Your contact details may be used to forward information and notifications from GCPHN. In some circumstances we may provide your information to our funding agency (Dept of Health) or to service providers that enter into legal contracts with us which are bound by confidentiality.  For further information on how we manage your personal information see our privacy policy.
