Complimentary tools and resources to further palliative care education


Isn’t it time that we looked at palliative care as an integral part of the care process?

We’re on a mission to develop and deliver resources to increase the capacity of the individual to provide excellent care for the dying and the bereaved.

A palliative approach can be integrated into care by all care providers in acute, emergency, long-term, and home care settings. A palliative approach does not need to be provided by specialists. The inclusion of a palliative approach across all settings means that all the dying, not just a minority of them, can benefit from the principles of hospice palliative care.

Since 2005 we have been developing and delivering palliative care education, resources and materials.

From textbooks and workbooks to a complete podcast library and complimentary teaching resources, we strive to help students to learn, and instructors to teach, palliative care principles.

Currently over 150 colleges and organizations are using our materials in their programs and curriculum.
