New session helps learners to recognise palliative care needs
The End-of-Life Care For All (e-ELCA) elearning programme now features a new session on recognising palliative care needs.
The resource describes common palliative care needs and offers guidance on how to identify these needs and provide the most appropriate care on an individual basis.
By the end of the session, learners should be able to describe what palliative care needs are, identify patients with palliative care needs and identify when specialist palliative care is required.
e-ELCA also features newly updated sessions covering a range of topics from assessment of anxiety, depression and delirium to spiritual care and quality of life. An existing session on dying as a prisoner has also been updated.
The new and updated sessions can be accessed through the End-of-Life For All programme page.
