This course aims to provide participants with the basic knowledge of end-of life care so that they may successfully support patients or loved ones with life-limiting conditions.
For learners already employed in a healthcare setting this programme will allow them to provide efficient and effective palliative care to those in need. The curriculum is designed to upskill healthcare professionals to have confidence to deal with the emotional and social stresses faced by a dying person, across different healthcare settings.
This programme will provide organisations with trained individuals who are able to take a specialised approach to care for patients with serious illnesses. The learner will benefit from the enhancement of their skills, in a field which is facing a documented increase in the demand for trained professionals, due to our ageing population.
Learners will be taught how to maximise their effectiveness, providing safe and ethical practice, contributing to a constantly changing elderly care environment. Learners will also be trained to respond with greater spontaneity and depth to various scenarios.
Mode of Delivery
This course will be delivered in an interactive and participative manner through lectures, role plays, group discussions and case studies.
The program can be completed within 14 hours.
Learners will be assessed at the end of each day, through the completion of short answer questions and case study discussions.
