Intercultural Palliative Care and End-of-life Training

Modern healthcare has provided new science and technology that has cured many illnesses and at the same time prolonged the experience of living with chronic illness and the process of dying.  This course will provide the knowledge, expertise and standards of practice across healthcare settings, with the aim of relieving suffering and supporting the best possible quality-of-life for our patients and their families.  Participants will gain tools to improve palliative/end-of-life care, familiarizing them with the "Caregiving Together" and "Think Through" processes to better identify needs and cultural differences of patients and families.
