The Program of Experience in the Palliative Approach (PEPA) provides palliative care education for all healthcare professionals.
The aim of the program is to improve the quality and accessibility of palliative care services for all people with life-limiting conditions and their families.
The program is an initiative of the Australian Government Department of Heath and Ageing (DOHA) and is funded through the National Palliative Care Program.
