The WHO defines palliative care as “an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing problems associated with life – threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering, the early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual”.
The goal of palliative care is achievement of the best quality of life for patients and their families. Palliative care is not limited to end of life care; many aspects of palliative care are also applicable earlier in the course of the patient’s illness in conjunction with other treatments.
Palliative care is an integral part of every nurse’s role. This course equips the nurse with a set of competencies required to provide quality palliative care services and education at all levels and settings of care. This certificate course aims to improve patient care through improved palliative nursing knowledge, skills and performance.
