À propos du 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....

Excellent course!! Even if can't compare to a master's degree, it certainly helps with the foundations you'll need in the future if you want to take this path in healthcare.

Fantastic class! I learned a lot. I love the fact that we have required readings; the teachers are so knowledgeable and the quizzes were at the right level of difficulty.

From my own understanding of the course, Palliative care is a field of Medicaid or Medicare that is use to help improve the quality of life of patients and their families who is going through sufferings that are life-threatening like in the form of illnesses. Palliative care helps through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and treatment assessment of pain or suffering that could be either psychosocial, physical and or spiritual.

This seemed way too long for what palliative care is. I think that the fluff could be eliminated and the course could be shortened. we lose focus by the end.

The tests were skewed, the questions were hard to answer because the page had errors. Otherwise the material was simple and easy to learn.
