Mrs Scarce presented Resthaven's Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner, Peter Jenkin, with the Innovation Award. This award recognises individuals who have demonstrated innovation and ingenuity in their contributions to the advancement of the field of palliative care.

In his current role, Peter contributes to quality end of life care in residential care facilities and those receiving community aged care packages thereby helping people to achieve their wish to remain in their facility or in their own home at the end of their life.
Peter is Australia's first Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner employed by an Aged Care provider. Peter says, 'I am privileged to win the innovation award for my work championing palliative care for older people and particularly the evolving Nurse Practitioner role.'

Peter Jenkin was endorsed as a Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner in Aged Care by the Australian Health Professions Regulatory Authority (AHPRA) on 17 May.
Peter Jenkin began at Resthaven in 2012 as a Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner Candidate, funded through the Australian Government's national Nurse Practitioner - Aged Care Models of Practice Program. His role aims to support people who are in the end phase of the ageing process, including people with dementia and other chronic health conditions.
'The Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner role includes managing complex physical and psychosocial problems, participating in or facilitating advance care planning and palliative care case conferences, and managing the terminal, end of life care of residents and clients,' says Peter.
'Where necessary, this may involve prescribing medications, ordering and interpreting diagnostic tests or referring to other health care professionals.'
'The Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner works collaboratively with medical and allied health professionals.'
Peter has worked in various clinical roles in Palliative Care for more than 15 years, particularly in specialist community services. In 1999, he jointly developed the palliative care 'link nurse' role in residential aged care. In 2000, he was awarded the SA Premiers Nursing Scholarship allowing him to travel to the UK to investigate the interface between residential aged care and palliative care, as well as the developing roles of Nurse Practitioners.
