TQUK End of Life Care Level 2 - Online Study

Online/Distance Learning

About the course

Distance learning courses enable you to boost your career with a nationally recognised qualification even if you don’t have the time to attend training sessions. You will work your way through the qualification submitting work every 2 weeks, achieving within approximately three months.

Approximately half of all deaths occur in a hospital, but hospitals were recently ranked the lowest in terms of the overall quality of care during the end of life period. Hospices were ranked the highest in terms of the quality of care and care homes were not far behind. This course aims to improve the quality of end of life care that is provided to individuals across all settings. This period in a person’s life is the most sensitive and difficult to deal with for the individual, the family and any carers or staff members who work with the individual. If you work in or want to work in the healthcare sector or need to care for a loved one during this difficult time, this course is the perfect place to start and will help you provide quality end of life care.

The course is split into six manageable units:

  • Understand how to work in end of life care

  • Principles of care planning in end of life care

  • Understand how to provide support to manage pain and discomfort

  • End of life care and dementia

  • Understanding the role of the care worker at time of death

  • Understand loss and grief in end of life care

This course is studied purely online and is ideal for those who are happy to work independently using our fully supported online learning platform.
