What We Do > Teaching & Training
Teaching & Training
Our educational programme covers three broad areas – the medical undergraduate & post-graduate programmes, the nursing postgraduate programme and practical training for those working within palliative care and related specialities.
Hospis Malaysia’s doctors and nurses are involved in palliative care teaching at major medical schools in the country. These teachings are enhanced with attachments with Hospis Malaysia’s clinical team. Most specialist trainees gain their community training through a six-month attachment with Hospis Malaysia.
Annually, we conduct a series of workshops on various aspects of palliative care.
Palliative Care Workshops
Hospis Malaysia organises regular workshops to educate and provide a better understanding of palliative care to the public, as well as various healthcare professionals, students, trainees and anyone who might be interested to join our team.
We conduct a series of workshops annually in collaboration with the Asia Pacific Hospice and Palliative Care Network (APHPCN / APHN). Our Workshop on Pediatric Palliative Care is in collaboration with the International Children’s Palliative Care Network (ICPCN). These palliative care themed workshops are aimed at palliative care practitioners and other allied healthcare professional. Each year, these workshops are attended by approximately 500 healthcare workers from across the country and the region.
