It aims to deepen and extend the knowledge and skills that are required and to provide an opportunity for students to reflect critically on their practice in the light of current evidence and of the experience of other students and faculty.This broad aim is achieved through the following: * catering primarily for professionals, the course provides the opportunity to build a knowledge base to improve their care for people living with a life limiting illness; * encouraging professional carers from a wide variety of backgrounds to enter the course and study together, to improve the communication between and understanding of one another's skills and knowledge; * utilising a range of lecturers and discipline backgrounds, to challenge students to be more creative in their practice; * providing opportunities for students to critique their own and others' practice, to develop practitioners who will have the skills and knowledge to change palliative care in line with changes in society and medicine; and * providing further education to students who have completed the graduate certificate and who intend to continue to develop in palliative care. Learning outcomesAt the completion of this course, students will have: * further developed their knowledge and skills in palliative care theory and practice; * critically reflected on their own practice; * applied theory to practice; * critically appraised theory, research and professional literature; * written a piece of independent intellectual work which adds to existing knowledge; and * published within the professional palliative care literature.
