Nurses as Trailblazers and Pathfinders: Let’s Make Things Happen

Join us for this half-day virtual conference as we showcase the work of nurses working as trailblazers and pioneering pathfinders.

Global Palliative Nursing Network

This event, hosted by The Global Palliative Nursing Network, offers a unique opportunity to learn directly from leaders whose achievements are significant, often against the odds. We will draw on experiences from across the world, including Sudan, Cameroon, India, and Lebanon.

The light we shine on their work reflects on progress to achieve the World Health Assembly call of 2014 for universal effort to make palliative care a component of comprehensive care throughout the life course, and what we can learn from them to address the work outstanding.

At this event, you’ll have the chance to:

  • Hear first-hand accounts from visionary individuals, gaining insights into their innovative approaches, challenges, and triumphs
  • Contribute to plans for combined efforts towards better and more palliative care in the future – we all have a part to play
  • Meet and connect with colleagues in your region and beyond
  • Draw on the ideas of global executive coach and author Jess Pryce Jones, who is launching her new book this July on the power of using intuition to get results.  

Whether you’re a seasoned professional or a nursing student, we believe this event offers a unique learning experience and place to connect and grow. We would like to meet you and introduce you to others!

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of a donor, we are able to offer free places to all who would not be able to afford to join otherwise. You will see this funded option when you click ‘Book now’.

Rehabilitative Palliative Care Skills Workshop

Shakun Banfield

Rehabilitation in palliative care has been well established as a way of supporting people to live well until they die. But we know that it can be so much more than a visit from a physio or OT.

Rehabilitative palliative care encourages us to think about how each interaction we have with someone can enhance their quality of life.

In this workshop we will explore the principles of rehabilitation in a wider context and how we can use them to enhance our practice.

We will explore topics such as goal setting, movement, enablement and self-management.

What will I learn?

In this workshop we will look at practical ways in which you can support someone to be the best that they can be. We will explore the importance of language in our interactions and there will be some role play.

Also we’ll look at the importance of asking ‘What matters to you?’ and how we can use that to influence the care/support that we provide.

Participants will receive a certificate of attendance.

Who is it for?

This workshop is appropriate for all Nurses, Nursing Associates, Healthcare Assistants, Care Home Managers, Pharmacists and other allied health professionals looking to learn more about rehabilitative palliative care.

Teach with CARE – improve your teaching practice

  • Are you passionate about teaching in health and social care?
  • Do you want to fine tune your teaching practice?
  • Would you like to introduce innovations in your approach to learning?  

Teach with CARE is a four-day course combining online and in person teaching spread over several weeks.

The course considers different perspectives of adult learning and pedagogy.

The sessions introduce best practice techniques including planning; presenting; resourcing; questioning; assessing and evaluating teaching across the four days.

Learners will also look at online educational tools for effective teaching as well as evaluating best practice for face-to-face and online teaching. They will have the opportunity to plan and share a short teaching session and receive supportive feedback.

Please note you will need to bring a laptop to each session. Do let us know if you are unable to do this.

It’s common to be asked to teach others as part of your role, but for those with no training and little experience in teaching, this can be a nerve-wracking prospect. Teach with CARE has been developed as a foundational step into the theory and practice of teaching and learning, giving clinical and non-clinical colleagues alike the confidence and ideas to excel in the role. High quality teaching is critical to our learners being able to put what we teach into practice, and therefore benefits the quality of care delivered throughout the sector.

Matt Tregellas, Learning Technologist and Teach with CARE Lead, St Christopher’s CARE

“I really enjoyed the four days. I think that Teach with CARE should be mandatory for all (teaching colleagues), no matter how long they have been teaching. It gives everyone a platform from which they can be launched and a sense of what is expected of them.” 

Teach with CARE attendee

What will the course look like?

This course will involve:

  • Online (days 2 and 3) and face-to-face (days 1 and 4) learning
  • Exploration of academic and web articles
  • A range of activity types including: live and video presentation; using interactive tools as both a learner and a teacher; discussion; pair and group work; self-study; critical thinking; reflection
  • Completion of tasks before and after sessions. There will be approximately one hour of self-study per session and slightly longer for the final assignment.

What will I learn?

  • Theories of teaching and learning
  • Consider the needs of adult learners and how to create engaging learning
  • Consider implications for practice when teaching face-to-face or virtually
  • Enhance and develop teaching practice

Who is it for?

The course is for anyone who wishes to improve their teaching practice face-to-face and online, particularly those in health and social care, but the learning from this course can be used in most settings.

Delegates are expected to have a basic understanding of navigating a laptop, supporting software and use of the internet.

MSc, Postgraduate Diploma and Postgraduate Certificate in Palliative Care

Overview

The MSc in Palliative Care course is intended for the future leaders of palliative and end of life care from multi-professional backgrounds (clinical care or teaching and research). The course will give you the skills necessary to critically appraise research and evidence on issues of palliative care to inform clinical practice and service development. Much of the work during the MSc will relate to your own personal work experience. This course draws on the research, expertise and international reputations of teaching staff at King’s College London and St Christopher’s Hospice. Other high profile experts in palliative care and other relevant disciplines and organisations also contribute to teaching.

We want to reflect the multi-professional nature of palliative care and provide an opportunity for different professionals to learn together. Past and present students include trainee doctors in palliative medicine, general practitioners, oncologists and anaesthetists, clinical nurse specialists in palliative care, community nurses, therapeutic radiographers, occupational therapists, social workers and music therapists. Previous overseas students have come from Europe (Denmark, Germany, Iceland, the Netherlands, Italy, Norway, Switzerland) and from further afield (Hong Kong, India, Japan, Canada, South Africa, Uganda and the USA).

We promise the ‘cut and thrust’ of discussion among students and lecturers will always be exciting!

Programme content

The syllabus is arranged in modules each consisting of ten days taught tuition.

Core modules

  • Research methods and statistics in palliative care
  • Biology and management of symptoms in advanced disease
  • Service organisation and policy in palliative care
  • Psycho-social, cultural, ethical and spiritual issues

Optional modules

  • Advanced pain and symptom control
  • Service development and management
  • Advanced psycho-social, ethical and spiritual care
  • Applying epidemiology to palliative care

MSc research project

A research project (15,000 words) usually based on the analysis of original data you have collected in your place of work.

Flexible learning options

In addition to the MSc qualification, we also offer a Postgraduate Diploma and a Postgraduate Certificate. This enables you to access the MSc programme at a point that is relevant to your circumstances, achieve credits and leave at a point that specifically meets your needs. Work achieved at one level can be carried forward to the next level. A break from study can be taken providing the final qualification is completed within a five-year period from registration.

The successful completion of the core Research Methods and Statistics in Palliative Care module, plus two other modules achieves the Postgraduate Certificate in Palliative Care; four core modules and two optional modules achieves the Postgraduate Diploma in Palliative Care.

The addition of the completed research project achieves the MSc in Palliative Care.

Formal entry requirements

You should normally have a degree in medicine or nursing, or an upper second class honours degree in life sciences, social sciences, or other approved subject awarded by a United Kingdom university or a recognised overseas university. You should also be able to demonstrate experience of working in palliative care or palliative medicine – in clinical or social care, or from a practice or research point of view.
