End of Life Care: Dementia and other non-Malignant Conditions (LSBU Partnership)
This module examines the ways in which the scope of palliative care can be extended to improve the quality of life and death of people with dementia and other non-malignant diseases. The underpinning philosophy of this module will be based on the principle of person-centred care; communication and reframing what is traditionally labelled as ‘difficult behaviours’ to expressions of needs, desire and distress.
By undertaking this module, participants will have the opportunity to explore areas related to the challenges of palliative care provision for non-malignant conditions such as cardiorespiratory, renal, liver, and neurodegenerative conditions using a palliative care approach will be explored.
