About this course

Palliative Care PgCert:

This course aims to develop the skills necessary to appraise evidence based care and conduct research on issues of palliative care in order to inform clinical practice and service development in the field of palliative care. Our primary aim is to improve the ability, competence and confidence of students to care for patients with advanced disease and their families. This relies heavily on critically appraising existing evidence of the effectiveness, appropriateness and acceptability of existing interventions and services, both medical and psychosocial. The course is multi-disciplinary - palliative care professionals from all disciplines learn alongside each other. It is jointly run with St Christopher's Hospice, which is widely regarded as the pioneer institution of the modern hospice movement with a reputation for excellence in clinical practice, research and education. You will develop a deeper knowledge and understanding of the many clinical, social, psychosocial, and ethical issues in palliative care and their assessment and management. You will also acquire the skills required to critically appraise the evidence of both existing and new treatments and carry out your own research.
