CareSearch My Learning Modules (OpenLearning)

Have you ever been in a situation with a patient where you did not know what to say next? Do you feel that you have missed an opportunity to make a positive difference to a patient and their family? CareSearch can help you find the right answers. My Learning introduces you to resources in CareSearch and shows you how you can use them in your clinical practice.

CareSearch is an online resource designed to help those needing relevant and trustworthy information and resources about palliative care. The website has been funded by the Australian Government's Department of Health.

Health professionals can find it difficult to manage the growing evidence relevant to the care of patients with palliative care needs. While CareSearch provides access to a wide variety of palliative care evidence and resources, knowing which one to use can be tricky.

CareSearch 'My Learning' are educational modules designed to help health professionals learn about the evidence resources in CareSearch. If you are a health professional looking to explore new ways of finding and using palliative care information to help you in your practice, the My Learning modules may be for you, and are free to use.

There are 7 short modules available for you to complete. Each module is made up of a learning package that uses a patient story to show how CareSearch resources can help. A brief quiz helps reinforce understanding. Once you complete each module, you are able to print a certificate for your professional records or CPD requirements, where appropriate.
