To be confirmed
High quality palliative and end of life care (EoLC) requires a pro-active, compassionate approach that is driven by research-based best practice, and continually strives to ensure person-centred, individualised care. This professional development course looks at all the issues involved, drawing on the long standing experience, expertise and up-to-date research skills of our team of health tutors.
If you’re a health or allied health and social care professional involved with the care of individuals with life limiting illnesses and end of life care, then this course is ideal.
We offer a systematic understanding and critical awareness of current problems and new insights in this field. We’ll support you to develop the theoretical knowledge and reflective abilities required so that you can deliver high quality physical, social, spiritual and psychological care to those nearing the end of life, and their families.
We’ll also focus on helping you develop a deeper understanding of the importance of inter-professional, multidisciplinary and multi-agency working as this is so crucial in the delivery of EoLC. Skills in this complex and sensitive area of contemporary health and social care are in increasing demand.
