Students will complete four online modules designed to teach them the core concepts of palliative care. Topics to be covered include: roles of the interdisciplinary team members, palliative care structure and processes, pain and symptom management, communication, grief and loss, spiritual dimensions of care, social and cultural care, and ethics. These modules were created in an interactive software program (Softchalk©) which links to videos, websites and activities. These modules should be completed BEFORE palliative care clinical rotations, ICME or Critical Reflection sessions.
Educators choosing to use this portion of the curriculum can make these links available to learners.
