Palliative Care test faculty

The role of nurses in the provision of palliative care is fundamental within the multi-disciplinary team. The complexities that surround palliative care are not always ‘black and white’. This module aims to support your daily work as a nurse, provide insight for those who wish to learn more about the field, and strengthen your confidence when encountering difficult situations to help you provide the best quality care.

With a few areas of the module focusing on the palliative care of lung cancer patients, this module largely provides an overview that intends to be useful for all types of nurses, including other types of healthcare professional.
