Principles of End of Life Care Level 2

Everyone facing life-limiting illnesses will need some degree of supportive care in addition to effective treatment for their condition. This course is designed to provide candidates with a broad understanding of end of life and palliative care, enabling them to provide sensitive and appropriate support to people nearing the end of life and their families.

The course aims to develop the learner’s knowledge and understanding of: the different perspectives on death and dying; the aims of end of life care; the principles of person-centred care planning; the support needed to manage pain and discomfort; how dementia impacts an individual’s end of life care; the role of the health and social care worker at the time of death, and how to appropriately support the bereaved.
