The short course is designed for both Enrolled and Registered Nurses, regardless of the clinical setting in which they work. It is structured to meet the needs of those who are interested in further study, and can contribute to Continuing Professional Development requirements.
The course will result in the understanding of theories and practices within health to support those who are terminally ill and their families with knowledge, evidence-based care and empathy.
Various modules will be undertaken by participants:
All study materials are available online and access information will be provided upon registration.
Students will complete two essays and one reflective piece during the course and must obtain a 50% score for each piece of assessment in order to pass. Upon completion, participants who pass each assessment will receive a Certificate of Achievement.
For organisations or health services who would like to enrol a group of students, an invoice can be raised and discounts applied (10 or more). For this option please contact Deb Rawlings for further information.
Palliative Care Nursing is coordinated by Dr Caroline Phelan.
Dr Phelan has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the area of palliative care, and coordinates many postgraduate palliative care topics for students in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences.
Successful completion of this course may provide a pathway for Registered Nurses without an undergraduate degree, into the Graduate Certficate in Palliative Care.
