Education & Resources

Poi MDTs offer free education around palliative approach to care, using the assessment tools, having conversations with clients and whānau, as well as palliative care related topics tailored to you and your staff’s needs. Please contact your local Poi team to discuss your education needs. 

​ Working with residential care

A large number of patients who would benefit from a palliative care approach are living in residential care facilities and these facilities have experience and expertise in providing this care. The Poi MDT-IR service is intended to work with facilities to understand how they work, their needs and to develop their existing capacity to provide holistic palliative care.

Providing tailored packages of support

The way the Poi MDT-IR service engages with residential care facilities and the methods used to support capability and capacity development will be tailored to the needs and context of each facility. This may include:

  • Policy review and advice
  • Shared case review and debrief
  • On-site education sessions
  • Coaching and advice.
