West Moreton Regional Care at the End of Life Knowledge Framework:
In August 2019 the West Moreton Care at the End of Life Collaborative launched the Knowledge Framework. This Framework was developed in consultation with West Moreton Health Professionals from various settings and disciplines.
The purpose of The Framework is to offer a baseline for knowledge and understanding for health professionals and professional caregivers providing care at the end of life in the West Moreton region.
The intent of The Framework is to provide a guide for individuals and organisations in the West Moreton region regarding what they need to know as ‘core business’ in their specific role to provide care at the end of life to people in the West Moreton community. The Framework is:
- Specific to West Moreton.
- A resource of accessible Australian education programs that may help those caring for people at the end of life to achieve the minimum knowledge identified.
The Knowledge Framework identifies the knowledge needs by professional groups. Key knowledge domains (regarding care at the end of life) are identified as most important, more important and important for each professional group. The Knowledge framework provides links through to online education modules and other resources to achieve the knowledge domains identified.
