PALPRAC PalliCHATs are CPD-accredited discussions about practical questions encountered in clinical practice.

They are available to all PALPRAC members free of charge. Other healthcare professionals are invited to join these informative discussions as well, but should a non-member or PALNET Connector require CPD points to be awarded for their (over 90% of the session) attendance, a fee of R100 will be charged . It might be worthwhile becoming a member!

Members will be able to access recordings of all PALPRAC PalliCHATs on our membership platform.  

PalliCHATs 2024

The third PalliCHAT session of 2024 is scheduled for Thursday, April 25th. This session will feature a dynamic panel discussion co-facilitated by esteemed professionals, Dr. Barbara Matthews and Dr. Craig Howes. The discussion will center around innovative strategies for broadening access to Palliative Care, exploring the utilisation of Telemed, and introducing the Puzzle Model along with the Remote Access Toolkit.
