Useful information

This course is run in partnership with King’s College London and aims to facilitate the personal and professional development of palliative care nurses and allied health professionals (AHPs) engaged in advancing their clinical practice and palliative care service delivery. The applicants must be clinical and working at Band 6 or above, and they must currently work in practice with access to a mentor.

The aim is to equip practitioners to work effectively within their organisational structure and to apply key principles to the development of their practice/service. The development of these skills will be underpinned by strategic concepts, appropriate theoretical frameworks and analytical tools, which will encourage practitioners to critically analyse the scope of their current role.

This module is the core course for the MSc Advanced Practice (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
