End of Life Care: An e-Learning Resource for Practitioners involved in End of Life Care
End of life care is a type of healthcare that is provided to individuals who are approaching the end of their life due to a terminal illness or advanced age. The goal is to provide comfort, dignity, and support to patients and their families during this difficult time. It typically involves a team of healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses, social workers, chaplains, and other specialists, who work together to address the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the patient and their family. Care can be provided in a variety of settings, including hospitals, hospice facilities, nursing homes and in the patient’s home.
The learning content of the online medical course covers a wide range of topics, include advance care planning, social care and symptom management. It also covers softer skills, such as communication, that are vital in caring for patients and their families. This online medical course is highly interactive, with videos, self-assessment questions and case studies to help you reflect on the difficult issues and put learning in a practical context.
