Course summary

Our part time, online course covers all aspects of delivering care to patients, including treatment modalities, biological, psychosocial and ethical perspectives. Developed and delivered with well-established cancer institutes and oncological and palliative care expertise, you will experience a comprehensive and intellectually stimulating experience wherever you are in the world.

Palliative Care is an important part of health care for those suffering from life-limiting illnesses and their families. In May 2012 the World Health Organisation (WHO) passed a resolution to incorporate palliative care into regular health care. This course has been designed to cover all aspects of palliative care, including:

pain
emotional and psychological care
medical, spiritual, social, and economic care

You can also take optional modules such as health economics, health technologies and medical ethics.

These courses are designed to provide those working in palliative care and related professional roles with detailed knowledge about the interrelationship between oncology and clinical cancer service provision.

Throughout the course you will develop clinical leadership, clinical excellence and the ability to cultivate interdisciplinary collaboration in the delivery of evidence based oncology/palliative care. This includes sharing mutually valuable information to help develop clinical practice. You will be introduced to the basis of research in palliative care, preparing you for further research within the field.

We have designed these courses in collaboration with the Faculty of Medical Sciences and it is delivered in association with the Northern Centre for Cancer Care (NCCC).

Our students include those:

training in nursing, medical or scientific specialties and dealing with cancer, clinical or medical oncology, or palliative care
working in the pharmacology industry or in cancer research.
