Course summary

This course develop the skills necessary to appraise evidence based care and conduct research on issues of palliative care to inform clinical practice and service development. It aims to develop the skills necessary to appraise evidence based care and conduct research on issues of palliative care in order to inform clinical practice and service development in the field of palliative care. Our primary aim is to improve the ability, competence and confidence of students to care for patients with advanced disease and their families. This relies heavily on critically appraising existing evidence of the effectiveness, appropriateness and acceptability of existing interventions and services, both medical and psychosocial. The programme is multi-disciplinary: palliative care professionals from across the world and from all disciplines learn alongside each other at the Cicely Saunders, the first purpose-built centre for Palliative Care.  Former and current students range from doctors, chaplains, nurses, social workers, physiotherapists, amongst many more.
