We are delighted to announce that our friends from Marie Curie Palliative Care Institute and University of Liverpool have kindly offered 2 fully funded places on Level 7 qualifications taking place in 2014.

Please note that due to the extremely limited availability of these fully funded places and the high standard of learning that will be expected, applications to apply require additional information regarding your current learning level. Ideally, applicants should be at a post-graduate level of learning before applying, as these are very intensive academic focused courses with a strong healthcare element.

(15 week 20 credit M level module)

Who is it for?
This flexible part-time course is designed for Doctors, Nurses and Allied Health Professionals who are specifically interested in developing an in-depth knowledge and understanding of end of life care as part of their academic and career development.  It is suitable for those who are balancing study, full time work and home life and who wish to have a flexible approach to study.   

About the Module
The topic areas that you can expect to see within the curriculum for this course include, clinical management of patients requiring end of life care, psychosocial, cultural and spiritual aspects of dying and death, ethical issues related to end of life care, national strategic development in end of life care and theories and principles of loss, grief and bereavement

Course 2: Challenges in Palliative and End of Life Care
5 Day Course - All days must be attended as a part of this funded place.
