Abstract In North America, people 85 years and older are the fastest growing age cohort and long-term care homes are increasingly becoming the place of end-of-life care. This is especially true in rural communities where services are lacking. Staff in long-term care homes lack education about palliative care, but in rural areas, accessing education and the lack of relevant curricula are barriers. The focus of this paper is to describe an approach to developing and delivering a research-based palliative care education curriculum in rural long-term care homes. The approach included conducting a detailed assessment of staffs' educational needs and preferred educational formats; developing a 15-hour interprofessional curriculum tailored to the identified needs; and delivering the curriculum on site in rural long-term care homes. Staff confidence and participation in delivering palliative care increased. Based on work in northwestern Ontario, Canada, this approach can serve as a model for palliative care education in other rural areas.
