An academic module delivered by Saint Francis Hospice for London Southbank University


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 illness. 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. Inequities in palliative care will be considered and the importance of a person centred, holistic approach.


This module can be studied at either Level 6 or level 7 and can be taken as a stand alone module of 20 credits or as part of the BSc or MSc in Palliative Care.
