Every one of your students will be providing Palliative Care in their career and it is one of the most stressful components of caregiving. The Quality End-of-Life Care Coalition of Canada reports that over the next 10 years professional education will be even more important in a systems-wide approach to hospice palliative and end-of-life care.
Research shows that people often remember what is said and done at the bedside of their loved ones last hours and days. Preparing your students using these resources will better enable them to be confident, competent and compassionate employees when they graduate.
In addition, your instructors can dovetail the materials throughout the course. There are many areas that can be used to strengthen current curriculum.
Your students will come into the field better prepared to care for all their patients and especially the dying, as well as for themselves. These materials are not a one-time read as they can be taken into the field with them after the course ends and refer back to them as required.
Over 150 colleges and organizations are currently using our materials.
