About this course

Our End of Life Course covers both Palliative and End of life care. The word Palliative Care comes from the Latin word, palliare, meaning to cloak. This includes any form of medical care or treatment that concentrates on reducing the severity of disease symptoms rather than attempting to reverse the progression of the disease. This means that palliative care deals with the management of pain and other physical symptoms.

The Council for Palliative Care definition (2006): “End of life care is care that helps all those with advanced, progressive, incurable illness to live as well as possible until they die.”

End of Life Care focuses on the care people receive in the last phase of life, this could be within the last six months to a year of the patients’ life, or even the last few days or weeks for some. This may also be referred to as the ‘dying phase’ or ‘terminal care’.
