This module develops the knowledge, skills and confidence of health and social care professionals involved in the delivery of end of life care.
As a student on this course you will explore creative approaches to caring for, and supporting, people approaching the end of their life, as well as being aware and responsive to the needs of their families and carers.
Your understanding of a person-centred approach to end of life care will be developed as you learn how to consider the psychosocial, physical and spiritual needs of the whole person. Through shared learning and reflection, you will have the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of your own experience of end of life care as well as inter-professional, multidisciplinary and multi-agency working.
This module fits well into our MA Professional Practice pathway, or our MSc Health Care Practice pathway.
