End of Life care for people with long term conditions

Continuing Professional Education

Overview

This module offers the opportunity to examine end of life experiences of people with non-malignant, life-limiting conditions and the effects on those close to them.  

People with long term conditions have the right to end of life care tailored to their needs.  This course draws on established palliative care principles to enable inter-professional learners, in all care settings, to develop their understanding and skills in end of life care.  The module will focus on supporting people across the age spectrum with lung and heart disease, neurological conditions, kidney failure, people with dementia and the frail elderly.
This module is followed by the End of life: Principles of care module that is delivered at St Barnabas Hospice in February 2019
