This interprofessional module will enable practitioners working within paediatric palliative care to develop and enhance their knowledge and skills of the nature and scope of palliative care for children and young people.

Students will explore and examine a range of subjects including grief and loss, cultural issues and interprofessional working and the impact these have on palliative care. Students will also be supported in developing their knowledge of professional, legal and ethical issues in palliative care.
