End of life care refers to a sort of health care that is available for people in the last stage of their lives. It is not limited to old people, but is also available for people with terminal illnesses that are too advanced, progressive or incurable. End of life care includes a range of decisions made by the patients such as their wishes to continue or discontinue treatment, concerns about palliative care and passing on the power to make end of life care decisions to someone else. This industry equally focuses on the spiritual, emotional and mental wellbeing of the patients, which is why it is also sometimes termed as supportive care.
In addition to the qualifications and skills, one has to be extremely tolerant, caring and compassionate to get into this industry and all of these will be taught and embedded onto learners throughout this course. The life care industry as a whole, along with its roles, duties, and responsibilities will also be discussed abundantly through this course to prep you up for such a career.
The course has also been designed to give plenty of attention to areas such as communicating during end of life care, assessing and care planning in end of life care, caring during the final hours of a patient’s life and during the bereavement phase and implementing person-centered approach to end of life care.
