À propos de ce cours

Palliative care provides invaluable help for patients living with serious or life-limiting illness and their family caregivers. Palliative care should be part of healthcare services to improve quality of life, the ability to tolerate and benefit from treatment and improve survival. In this course, you will learn about the nature of suffering and how this concept can help you understand the experience of people living with serious illness. Next, you will learn skills to more effectively communicate with patients, families and other care providers to both understand their experiences and provide an extra layer of support. In the next module you will explore your own core values and beliefs and how they impact your work with others. Finally, you will learn how to do a whole person assessment to understand the needs of people with serious illness so you can develop a plan to support them. You will be able to immediately use these insights, skills and tools in your work with people living with serious illness. In later courses, you will learn to ease pain and other symptoms, such as loss of appetite, shortness of breath and fatigue. In the final course, you will explore ways to ease psycho-social-spiritual distress. These courses will prepare you to bring basic palliative care to all in need....

I enjoyed learning, my significant other has two serious illnesses. On October 16, 2018, he had surgery that found 70% of his liver had to be removed, additionally, he had previously been diagnosed with 4th stage prostate cancer. A 74 yrs. old man , who was still employed, active and a heavy drinker and smoker. I've been unable to purchase the book in the first course, because I was back and forward from New York to New Jersey helping with his care! In order to continue, I've had to hand over his care to his immediate family. This is an interesting area of healthcare study, and I want to successfully complete the entire Specialization!
