Palliative Care MasterClass dates for 2021 are to be confirmed.
The programme will focus on Parkinson’s disease, dementia, multiple sclerosis (MS) and motor neurone disease (MND). The next course will be a two day residential course in Sheffield in 2021.
Who are these courses for?
The Palliative Care MasterClasses are aimed at all health professionals involved in palliative care for neurological conditions – including allied health professionals, doctors (grade SpR and above), specialist nurses, community teams and GPs.
The MasterClasses cover some of the following topics:
- Specific unmet palliative care needs in Parkinson’s, dementia, MS and MND
- Palliative assessment tools
- Disease-specific issues faced by patients
- Commonly encountered medications and their side effects
- Terminal stages – particularly how to identify and manage drug therapies in final days
- Service considerations and delivery
- Promoting autonomy – how and when to consider ACP in the context of cognitive impairment
- Examples of good practice, discussion of how such practice could be spread and incorporated elsewhere
- Future directions and research, quality improvement opportunities
