Summary

Please note the next available start date for this course is August 1st 2020

Approximately half of all deaths occur in a hospital, but hospitals were recently ranked the lowest in terms of the overall quality of care during the end of life period. Hospices were ranked the highest in terms of the quality of care and care homes were not far behind. This course aims to improve the quality of end of life care that is provided to individuals across all settings.

This period in a person’s life is the most sensitive and difficult to deal with for the individual, the family and any carers or staff members who work with the individual. If you work in or want to work in the healthcare sector or need to care for a loved one during this difficult time, this course is the perfect place to start and will help you provide quality end of life care.

The qualification is ideal for anyone who is already working in or intending to work in the healthcare or social care sector. It will provide you with knowledge and understanding of end of life care to support your role. The course may also be suitable for anyone who is caring for a loved one or family member during their final stages of life.

Studying via distance learning means you can choose when and where you study.

This course is split into 6 manageable units:

  • Unit 1: Understand how to work in end of life care

  • Unit 4: End of life care and dementia
  • Unit 5: Understanding the role of the care worker in time of death
  • Unit 6: Understand loss and grief in end of life care.
