This course is an ideal qualification for those seeking to increase their knowledge and understanding of end of life care in a vocational context. This includes a wide range of people working in healthcare whose job description involves caring for those who have a lifelimiting illness.
This qualification is also appropriate for those who have achieved other sector-specific qualifications in the healthcare sector who need to apply their understanding in a palliative care context.
This course is designed for adult learners studying part time as a hobby or to support a change in their career.
Successful students will be able to provide support in end of life care when working in healthcare or social care roles.
You will need:
