- McConigley, Ruth; Kristjanson, Linda; Nikoletti, Sue
- Health professionals in rural Western Australia have embraced palliative care, however, to date no information has been available about the issues that face those providing the care. The descriptive study was undertaken to determine what palliative care education and support resources were available to rural health professionals, and to ascertain what further services would be of benefit to their practice. The findings of this study suggests that rural health professionals would welcome increased access to both education and support services when providing palliative care to patients in their communities. Recommendations are made that could enhance the delivery of palliative care education and support to rural Western Australia.
