By 2040, the number of people in Britain aged 64 and over is expected to grow from 9.5 million to 15 million. The population is aging, which means there will be more people living with serious illnesses and in need of end of life care. The support needed and problems faced by people nearing the end of life is wide-ranging. Good understanding of pain management, support and quality of life is essential for all carers.
The Level 3 Principles of End of Life Care course is ideal for those who work in a care setting. It allows learners to gain relevant skills, knowledge and understanding of the different support services available and what is needed to create better person-centred care.
This qualification will give you the insight into the main practices surrounding end of life care and explores common questions and themes that carers may encounter. This innovative qualification can fast track your progression to a level which is recognised by employers.
As part of this course you will study five mandatory units:
UNIT 1 – Understanding end of life care
UNIT 2 – Communication during end of life care
UNIT 3 – Assessment and care planning in end of life care
UNIT 4 – Person centre approaches to end of life care
UNIT 5 – Care during the final hours of life and bereavement care
Assessments are due at the end of each unit. Your tutor will assess your work and build up your portfolio of evidence of learning. A certificate will be awarded on satisfactory submission of evidence of learning for the units studied.
