HEALTH PROMOTING PALLIATIVE CARE
Credit points: 15
In this subject, students are introduced to a fresh approach to palliative care, drawing upon the insights of health promotion as represented in the Ottawa Charter and applying them to the core concerns of palliative care. The essential elements of health promoting palliative care - health education, death education, social support, interpersonal reorientation and policy development - will be presented, and through the seminars participants will be encouraged to explore applications to their personal and professional formation and practice.
