What happens when someone starts to die, and how can we deliver the best care possible?
How we die is a profoundly personal journey. This course will help you you understand exactly what is meant by palliation,  what may happen as death approaches, practical matters you may need to consider when caring for a dying person, and how a death can affect family relationships. The goal of care for people who are dying focuses on helping them enjoy as good a quality of life as possible. This may include relieving symptoms and  suffering; helping people stay as well as they can; and helping them achieve goals that are important to them before they die. This care is often provided by a mix of professionals, including those skilled in palliative care. These professionals will want to ensure that everyone affected by a terminal condition (including families and carers) know about the choices they have and what support is available to them at this difficult time.
I teach and openly address important issues whilst  offering practical guidance on the various problems and difficulties that occur in relation to this challenging subject.
This is a two day course. Day 1 - Tuesday 24th April
                                              Day 2 - Tuesday 8th May
Cost: £35 per day.
Refreshments provided. Bring lunch.
