Hospice Palliative Nursing Course
The Queen’s University School of Nursing (http://nursing.queensu.ca/index.php) offered the new 6-module (8-week) online Hospice Palliative Nursing course (NURS 428) for the first this past spring term (2011) to 45 third & fourth year nursing students. Currently it is offered to a maximum of 50 students in the spring term only, and will be offered in 2012.
This online course was developed with the input from over 20 regional nurses, social workers, spiritual and hospice directors, a community representative, educators and physicians who work or have an interest in the area of hospice palliative care.
The module topics include an overview of hospice palliative care, pain and symptom management, care of vulnerable populations e.g., elderly, children, care of adults with cancer, care of adults with end-stage illnesses, and professional self-care.
This course is open to senior health professional students (university and college). Please contact School of Nursing for more details. (613-533-2668)
