This Palliative Care training course is best run for either care staff or trained staff but not a mixed group as their needs are very different.

It is designed for people new to this field or as a refresher. This should be viewed as an overview as palliative care is a diverse topic with many factors dependent to the patients specific needs. This course allows people to discuss their own feelings/experiences of dealing with a life limiting illness.
