After successfully completing the course candidates will be able to further their own continuous professional development, which may improve their career prospects or progress to further training. You could also progress on to further study in the field or other Distance Learning programmes.

The programme is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the emotive issues surrounding death and dying. It will help learners to develop their knowledge and understanding of palliative care and its place within end of life care, along with the support services available to the individual and others. The learning materials will encourage the use of a ‘person-centred’ approach to meet the physical, emotional, social, cultural and spiritual needs of people nearing the end of life and their families.
You will be allocated your own study pack and have a personal tutor who you can contact throughout your studies. You will be required to work through a series of tasks and activities designed to reinforce the learning process and demonstrate our knowledge. You will be required to complete six units through written assessment; also available with online assessment.
