Nurses spend the greatest period of time with patients at the end of their lives and are uniquely placed to shape and improve the delivery of palliative care services in countries around the world.
This course provides a systematic introduction to palliative care nursing concepts, emphasising the information and skills necessary to perform as a palliative care nurse in an average life health care context.
A distinguishing feature of this course is its emphasis on a person-centred approach to palliative care nursing, which will ensure the assurance and safety of caring for people with end-of-life conditions in acute care units, palliative care units, specialist haematology and oncology units, as well as aged care and community settings.
Simulated case studies and evaluations are used to help students gain an awareness of the specialised information, clinical reasoning, and skills necessary to care for persons with end-of-life conditions and their families. Students will develop confidence in their ability to use specialised information and skills acquired in a life span health care context.
