Last Aid

Community Education Program

About Last Aid

Community Education Program is Now AVAILABLE in South Australia!

Everyone is likely to experience the need to be a first responder at an accident or emergency at some point in their lifetime and therefore need to know the basic knowledge and skills of first aid.

Everyone will know someone who is experiencing serious illness, dying, death or grief at some point in their lifetime.

What is Last Aid?

Last Aid is a 4-hour international standardised introductory level community education program.

What topics are covered?

  • Dying as a normal part of life
  • Planning ahead
  • Relieving suffering
  • Final goodbyes

Who Should Attend?

This education program is for members of the community, community groups, businesses, retirees, who want to improve their confidence and skills in supporting carers, family members, colleagues or people experiencing a terminal diagnosis, dying, death or grief.

At Palliative Care SA, we believe that just as every organisation needs a First Aider, we all need a Last Aider, because dying, death and grief are universal.
