Palliative Medicine

Palliative care medicine courses to support you and your learning at every stage in your career.

No matter what your medical specialty is, chances are that at some stage in your career, you will be providing end-of-life care to a terminally ill patient. Which means not only will you be dealing with your patient’s unique physical needs, you’ll also be navigating their stress and emotions, and those of their loved ones.


On top of all this, you are likely to be part of a multi-disciplinary team, all working towards the best possible standard of care and comfort for your shared patient.
