General Information

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 life-limiting 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.

Distance learning is a great way of learning remotely without being in regular face-to-face contact with a teacher or an assessor. Students have the flexibility to study at home or at work, fitting in their course around other life and work commitments.

Who is this course for?

The qualification is designed for anyone who is seeking to increase their knowledge and understanding of end of life care in a vocational setting.
