Join our End-of-Life Care Training course to gain the skills and knowledge needed to provide compassionate support, nurturing both comfort and dignity for individuals in their final stages of life.

What is End of Life Care?

End-of-life care, also known as palliative or hospice care, focuses on providing comfort, pain management, emotional support, and dignity to individuals with terminal illnesses. It addresses physical and emotional needs, facilitates communication and decision-making, and ensures a peaceful environment, respecting cultural and spiritual beliefs. End-of-life care can include hospice care for those with a life expectancy of six months or less and extends support to the patient's family, helping them cope with caregiving and grief. The goal is to enhance the quality of life for patients during their final stages while respecting their preferences and values.
