96826 Optimising End-of-Life Communication

3cp; 6-8hpw (distance)



This subject equips students to develop specialised knowledge and skills to engage in effective communication and facilitate shared decision making at the end-of-life for patients and their families/carers. Students use innovative and thoughtful ways of working to synthesise current theoretical and evidence-based communication models, including digital health to optimise communication. Students consolidate and apply these new communications skills and knowledge to a person-centred care practice scenario. The scenario is relevant to students' workplace practice now and into the future and considers models and settings of care.
