Foundations in End of Life Care (2024)

This session focuses on the basics of end of life care and is a great foundation for new staff and individuals unsure about palliative and end of life care. The session is both informative and interactive with a good variety of activities, including a presentation, group discussion, handouts and information to take away.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    We also deliver a similar course aimed at RN’s – End of Life Care for Registered Professionals.
