About this course

The care given within a person's dying days is arguably the most important responsibility a carer can possess. It is, therefore, of utmost importance that the care given to these patients is carried out with respect, empathy and support towards the patient and their family.

Ensure your staff know exactly what to do in relation to end-of-life care to allow patients to pass in comfort and peace and to allow their family happy memories of their life.
