Providing culturally sensitive palliative care - Webinar
Join us for a Webinar about palliative care, and how health professionals can provide culturally sensitive palliative care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
We will also introduce you to the PalAssist service and how the service can support people with a life limiting illness.
Occupational Cancer e-learning module
In some Australian workplaces, employees are exposed to a diverse range of possible carcinogens at higher concentrations and for longer periods of time than the general public. It is estimated that approximately 5000 cancers each year are caused by workplace exposures.
Cancer Council has developed an e-learning module to increase GP’s awareness of workplace carcinogens and cancers. The module includes sections on occupational cancers in the Australian context, the role of an exposure history, common occupational cancers and the Australian compensation system.
The 60 minute module is accredited with both RACGP and ACRRM.
