PGCert Integrated Palliative and End of Life Care

Join a programme for frontline healthcare staff which enables you to deliver palliative and end-of-life care for people with advanced, progressive and terminal illnesses, immersing you in an interactive virtual community of fictional patients.


Course Length: 1 Year Full-Time, 18 Months Part-Time
Start Dates: September 2020, February 2021, September 2021, February 2022
Subjects: Health and Social Care
Location: Edge Hill University
Terence Burgess Education Centre, Southport

This PGCert is designed to make palliative and end-of-life care real, meaningful and accessible for all frontline clinical staff. The programme is suitable for nurses (community, hospital, nursing home, hospice), health and social care practitioners, allied health professionals, paramedics and doctors (GPs, specialist doctors and doctors in training). You will gain enhanced knowledge, confidence and competence in assessing the palliative and end-of-life care needs of patients and their families. Individual disease groups will be analysed and the trajectory of dying assessed, looking for similarities and differences and seeing how these might be managed. In addition to this, you will learn how to manage symptoms and address concerns arising across the four domains of holistic care (physical, psychological, spiritual and social). Ethical and legal aspects of care will also be considered.
