Understand what palliative care is
Over three weeks, you will be introduced to the concept of palliative care and how it can be integrated with other types of care. The course will feature examples of where this has been done well.
Learn how palliative care is managed across Europe
Drawing on research from the EU funded project InSup-C, we will learn how integrated palliative care is managed across five European countries. It will include international guest speakers to provide real-life examples of best practice in delivering integrated palliative care.
Explore the best ways to care for people approaching the end of life
The programme is co-ordinated by the International Observatory on End of Life Care, a world-leader in the field of palliative care. By taking part in this course, you will have the opportunity to explore and discuss the best ways to care for people who have advanced cancer, heart failure or lung disease who are approaching the end of life.
