Resource – FAQ’s
Do we need to link our topic to all 9 national palliative care standards?
Firstly, introduce and explain what the National Palliative Care Standards (NPCS) are on one slide and how they
link to your topic for your target audience
You do not need to explain all 9 national palliative care standards in detail, this would be a narrated PowerPoint
on its own. Please select what you believe are important standards that link well to your topic, selected
learning outcomes and evidence-based practice
REMEMBER: You can use various features of PowerPoint to circle or highlight the standards that you will
discuss in more detail within your professional development resource to make your slides engaging for the
listener. Images and text can be used on your slides so adding an image of the NPCS and referencing it
appropriately is of value within your presentation.
What is the minimum number of standards that I must include?
Review the LEO content to understand the National Palliative Care Standards, there are 9 in total. A third-year
assessment task would include an absolute minimum of 3, as per the rubric you must justify how you believe
they relate to your topic

FAQ’s
Can Streams B & C submit their work on a different date?
No, the unit has been designed for you to work through the modules and case studies at your own pace,
irrespective of the stream you are in.
Streams are timetabled to work through x3 case studies on palliative care patients in different settings
and age groups across the lifespan. The resources for these have been available to all students since the
beginning of semester. It is a requirement to familiarise yourself with these prior to all classes, therefore
begin working through the content ASAP
Why can’t different streams have a different submission date?
Clinical Placement is not a valid reason for an extension request, all students will be allocated and
completing clinical placement this semester and will need to complete assessment tasks for all units.
An important aspect of transitioning from student to working professional is an essential skill that we are
teaching you as an undergraduate student. Personal and professional time management is critical, as an
RN you will be required to undertake ongoing education to remain clinically current for your career
