Level 3 Principles of End of Life Care
The Level 3 Principles of End of Life Care qualification covers the key topics relating to end of life care. In particular, you will learn about the emotive issues surrounding death and dying and develop your understanding of palliative care and its place within end of life care.
The course reviews how best to support a person’s familial, spiritual, social and emotional needs, along with the support services available to the individual and others. In addition you will explore the processes of loss and grief and how to support those who are bereaved and also how to cope with your own feelings of stress and grief.
