This course has been designed to prepare experienced practitioners from all disciplines involved in the care of patients and families at the end of life for advanced roles in palliative care; the course is based on the belief that palliative care is, by definition, interdisciplinary and therefore requires interdisciplinary education.

Shadows and horizons: developing palliative care practice; developing advanced communication skills in palliative care; supporting the patient and family in palliative care: a team approach; working with people with complex pain and symptoms; an integrated approach to breathlessness in palliative care.
Critical commentary and reflection on practice; case study analysis; poster presentation; portfolio; self- and lecturer assessment of taped interviews.
