Palliative Care: Making it Work

Lancaster University via FutureLearn

This course may be unavailable.


Got a personal or professional interest in palliative care?

The modern day palliative care movement aims to help people live well in their last year of life and ultimately realise a good death. However, every day more than 150,000 people die across the world and only a small minority receive palliative care services.

We introduce the concept, how it can be integrated with other types of care and look at examples of this being done well. Drawing on research from EU funded project InSup-C, we learn how integrated palliative care is managed across five European countries. The International Observatory on End of Life Care coordinate the programme.

This free online course is for staff working in palliative care whether as part of their general role in hospices, hospital teams, care homes, community teams, third party organisations as well as those with an interest in palliative care such as patients and family caregivers.
