This module will focus on the communication and advance care planning competencies required to support those who need end of life care or have a life limiting illness, and help them to express choice and engage in complex decision-making. Communication strategies for advance care planning and directives, the patient choice agenda and the legal, ethical and professional issues will also be explored.
Students will have the opportunity to engage in a number of different learning perspectives. By participating in challenging case study discussions, interactive and scenario small group roles, lead lectures and e-learning they will be able to analyse and synthesise communication, patient choice and complex decision making concepts and ideas.
