PEPA workshops are in high demand. While PEPA is free to participants, there are costs to running the workshops and engaging specialists in palliative care to provide this education. If you find you are unable to attend the workshop after registration, please advise PEPA as soon as possible so we may offer your place to someone else.

If you do not advise PEPA Victoria you are unable to attend, you may incur an administrative fee. Repeat non-attendance after registration may prevent future registrations. Thank you for your understanding.
