Supportive, palliative and end of life care are an important part of the work of many professionals. These programmes of education are designed to assist you with your work and help you develop professionally and personally.
The overall aim of the programme is to provide professionals with modules of learning that develop skills, knowledge and attributes, which enhance professional practice.
Although the programme focuses on supportive and palliative care it is anticipated that you will be able to transfer what you have learned to any area of professional practice. Your new skills, intellectual and professional, should be widely applicable.
The modules of learning are designed to be flexible and meaningful, engendering an approach that accurately reflects the nature and practice of supportive and palliative care. You will be learning in an environment that is supportive of your personal and professional needs.
These modules of education are for staff working in health or social care who have contact with clients with palliative care needs and their families. Your learning needs and how these can be best matched to modules and pathways can be discussed with the teaching team before you start studying and at anytime during your learning journey.
The programme consists of individual modules of learning that can either be taken as one-off units of study or "built up" towards a BSc (Hons) Professional Studies in Supportive and Palliative Care. All the modules are validated by University of Bolton.
