BSc and Graduate Diploma in Supportive and Palliative Care

As patients are living longer with more complex conditions, it is increasingly important that healthcare professionals are confident caring for patients in the last year of their lives.  

To support healthcare professionals as they develop their knowledge and understanding in this area, The School has developed a new BSc and Graduate Diploma in Supportive and Palliative Care. 

The BSc is designed for nurses who wish to 'top-up' an existing diploma to degree level, and the graduate diploma is suitable for healthcare professional who wish to do further undergraduate level study.  

Both courses will enable students to develop the skills and knowledge needed to provide excellent palliative and end-of-life care to patients, while the wide range of optional modules available means that students can tailor the courses to meet their individual interests or requirements.
