Palliative care: Next steps in learning...

Last updated: Sunday, January 03, 2021

CPPE has links to useful learning resources via its Palliative Care gateway page including an introduction to palliative care and a quiz. The resource Dealing with difficult discussions is an e-learning programme designed to help you approach difficult discussions with patients and others.

CPPE also has a palliative care topic at providing bite-sized interactive challenges to help you to support patients with the management of pain, fatigue, mouth problems and other common symptoms in palliative care.

Try the e-learning module on Palliative care on the SCRIPT safety site supported by HEE. You will need to log-in but access is free with an NHS e-mail address.

In addition, you might like to look at these resources:

  • NICE has published a Clinical Guideline on Strong Opioids for Adults in palliative care.
  • Explore the valuable range of information provided for the public in Scotland about palliative care by NHS Inform.
