This course is aimed at professionals who are working in the field or have a particular interest in palliative and end of life care, as well as those working with individuals living with life limiting illnesses. It provides you with the opportunity to consolidate and enhance your knowledge and understanding of effective palliative and end of life care.

  • The course is aligned with the End of Life Core Skills Education and Training Framework (NHS England).

  • It has been developed in partnership with Kirkwood hospice.

  • Learning will be focussed upon enhancing your knowledge, skills and the essential attributes required to drive high quality care for individuals with palliative care needs, whilst also encompassing the care and support of families and those important to them in a variety of health and social care settings.

Throughout your studies emphasis will be placed upon the holistic assessment of the individual and the development of management plans from which optimum end of life care can be delivered. Legal and ethical requirements will also be examined within the context of end of life care and their implications for practice.
