Palliative and End of Life Care Foundations

This module for registered nurses has been developed collaboratively between St Christopher’s and the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery and Palliative Care at King’s College London (KCL) and can be taken as a 15-credit standalone module at Level 6 (degree level) or as an optional module for the BSc programme.

This module explores the principles of palliative and end of life care, as applied in all care settings (hospices, acute hospitals, care homes and the community). It aims to equip nurses with the skills to complete an initial and ongoing assessment of the needs of a patient requiring palliative or end of life care, with regard to their physical, psychological, spiritual and cultural well-being. It will also explore and analyse the needs of the ‘family’ and the role of the nurse and multi-professional team in meeting these needs.
