The AHHA is the independent peak membership body and advocate for the Australian healthcare system and a national voice for universally accessible, high-quality healthcare in Australia.
Established in 1946 to ensure higher standards, greater efficiency and improved conditions for patients, the AHHA has made a significant impact on achieving these original objectives, helping to develop a culture of collective responsibility for healthcare. Our collaborative and dynamic approach means AHHA is uniquely positioned to facilitate collaboration between clinicians, academics, policy makers, administrators and politicians.
AHHA’s members come from across the Australian health system and represent the acute, primary, community and aged care sectors as well as those organisations that support the delivery of quality health services.
The Palliative Care Online Training Platform is designed to support those working and volunteering on the frontline of palliative care service delivery to apply the Guidelines for a Palliative Approach to Aged Care in the Community to their practice. It includes the knowledge, skills and values that are required to communicate and contribute to the care of clients in the community who have a life-limiting illness and or are approaching the final stages of the normal ageing process.
