  • What will I learn?

    This module aims to equip nurses to provide active holistic palliative care to patients with advanced progressive illness. It considers the role of the nurse in symptom management and the provision of physical, psychological, social and spiritual support in order to achieve the best possible quality of life for patients and their families.

  • Who is it for?

    This course has been developed in collaboration with Florence Nightingale School of Nursing and Midwifery, King’s College London (KCL) and can be taken as a 15-credit module at either level 6 or level 7. It is suitable for RNs working in any setting. However, it may be more applicable to those specialising in palliative care.

More about St Christopher's education

St Christopher’s Education Centre and VAT charges

At St Christopher's, a registered charity, it is important for us to maximise any surpluses to reinvest in the objectives of the charity.

Unfortunately, the manner in which we undertake our training currently means we are not able to invest as much of our surplus as possible, therefore from the 1 December 2017, St Christopher’s Education Centre will charge VAT at the standard rate on our training courses, the reason for this change in pricing is twofold:

i) We want to be able to reinvest any surpluses made from training back into all of our charitable objectives rather than only Education

ii) We want to be able to reclaim the VAT on costs relating to developing and running the training courses
