What you'll learn on the course
Learn how to provide care and support for patients with life-limiting illnesses, and their families. You'll study at St Helena Hospice in Colchester - a nationally recognised palliative care hospice - gaining clinical expertise in an authentic environment.
There's an increasing demand for palliative and end-of-life care as demographics change and more people need access to support and services. The nature of the services themselves is also developing and changing.
If you're a registered health and social care professional who's interested in delivering palliative care, our top-up course will give you a recognised qualification. Designed for busy practitioners working in a range of clinical settings, you’ll get hands-on experience of caring for patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families. This will help you develop the knowledge and skills to provide well-rounded, evidence-based care.
Throughout the course we’ll encourage reflection and discussion, considering all aspects of the care you provide. Underpinning everything is the NHS's 6 Cs: care, compassion, competence, communication, courage and commitment.
