Palliative Medicine and Palliative Care
This course has been specifically designed for the varying needs of busy practitioners working in differing clinical settings across the globe. The Postgraduate Diploma is designed for professionals who wish to gain expertise in the practical management of patients with non-curable and terminal illness, and emphasises the unique contribution made by each discipline involved in palliative care. The principles of reflective practice and learning underpin the Diploma. A major aim in the teaching programme is to encourage thought and discussion and equip students with practical and factual knowledge, and also provide an evidence based approach to problems in palliative care. The attitudes and abilities acquired should be of lasting value long beyond specific advances in therapy and management. The MSc draws on the knowledge and skill-base developed in the Postgraduate Diploma, with the specific intention of expanding students' understanding of scientific method, research and critical appraisal. The principles of reflective practice learning remain as relevant, although the MSc reinforces this self-directed approach with appropriate tutor and supervisor support.
