In collaboration with the Asia Pacific Hospice Palliative Care Network (APHN), Hospis Malaysia will be organising its annual workshop on Palliative Care Nursing on 30-31 January 2016.
Ms Jan PHILLIPS, an experienced palliative care Nurse Consultant and Educator based in Australia will be facilitating this two-day workshop. Ms Phillips is a Fellow of the Australian College of Nursing with qualifications encompassing General, Palliative Care and Oncology. She is a faculty member with the Asia Pacific Hospice and Palliative Care Network (APHN) and nurse educator and mentor with Hospis Malaysia and at Rachel House Paediatric Palliative Care Team in Jakarta, Indonesia. More recently, she has been a faculty member of the Lien Collaborative APHN programmes to both Myanmar and Bangladesh. Prior to her APHN involvement, Jan lived and worked at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre in Lahore, Pakistan where she assisted in the development of their Palliative Care Service.
‘Nursing is not an easy task, especially in the field of palliative care, when patients who face life-limiting illnesses have a poorer prognosis, are more likely to have a large range of symptoms, and are also, more emotionally vulnerable’.
This workshop will address important aspects of care and topics include patient assessment, communication issues, wound management and the entire spectrum of patient care which is vital towards ensuring patients receive the due care they need in their preferred familiar surroundings.
Nurses wanting to enhance their skills in communication, patient assessment, or caring for patients in their final hours and more are encouraged to register. This workshop will include interactive teaching methods, and will be based on tutorials and practical exercises.
