This subject supports students in consolidating and synthesising knowledge in relation to palliative care provided across varied health care contexts and globally. Teaching and learning strategies focus on developing skills in the following core areas: effective communication at the end of life, symptom assessment (physical and psychosocial) and management for people with advanced progressive life-limiting illness, optimising care across interdisciplinary healthcare teams and across differing health settings, decision making grounded in best evidence, cultural and spiritual care, and grief and loss. In the online teaching modules students are supported to challenge and extend their knowledge of symptom management and end of life care to enable them to better describe the provision of optimal care for patients with palliative care needs, and their families/carers. Finally, strategies to enable resilience, emotional health and wellbeing, foster knowledge and skills for a supportive working culture.
