The AdvCert in Palliative Care Practice is a degree level course (Level 6), which focuses on the theoretical and practical context of Palliative Care Practice for current healthcare practice. Taking into consideration the recommendations of the end of life strategy and common core competencies, this undergraduate course provides the opportunity for healthcare professionals, who offer care to persons at the end of life or with short life expectancy, to develop their awareness of the pertinent issues and skills involved and evaluate how these are reflected in care provision.
Palliative Care Practice aims to focus on enhancing specialist knowledge and skills that relate to palliative nursing practice. The double module aims to facilitate learning to support and enhance the practitioner’s role as a member of a multidisciplinary team, in providing holistic and individualised care for clients and their families who are approaching the palliative phase of their illness.
