End of Life Care eLearning course

Have you experienced the death of another person? If you haven't, you will. We will all die one day and we will all experience the death of another person at some point in our lives. In social care, we often work with people with medical conditions and ill-health. People are not generally comfortable talking about death but it is something that you need to prepare for in your work. Much of what we will cover in this course will also be relevant to you personally.

The key objective for people working in health and social care is to support people to have a good death experience. This online course will enable you to better manage working with people who need end of life care. If you are currently experiencing grief or someone close to you is terminally ill, you may need to seek support as you work your way through this online course.
