Applicants should currently be caring for people with a life limiting condition
Students will explore the philosophy of palliative care and symptom management and apply this knowledge to their care of patients living with a life limiting condition in a range of health and social care settings.
This module is recommended for health and social care practitioners from any care setting – acute sector, long-term care, or the community, working with individuals with a palliative condition. It will provide students with the knowledge and skills required to support and care for patients for whom the focus of care is maintaining their quality of life through holistic assessment, optimal symptom management, supportive communication and multi-disciplinary teamwork. The module will enable students to explore key concepts in palliative care and relate these to their practice settings.
I thoroughly enjoyed the days in the school: the group dynamics were great and well-facilitated by the module leader, who encouraged group participation. It was really interesting hearing other students’ experiences.
