Course Overview

Britain has an ageing population - which means more people will live with serious chronic illnesses and need palliative and end of life care. When providing palliative and end of life care to individuals that are facing their last months, weeks or days of life, it's important to ensure we consider their wishes and act with compassion. This course is useful for people working in a wide range of care settings, including hospices, care homes, care in the community, and primary care.
