This course builds on students’ existing knowledge and learn how to apply best practice with the faculty of experts and cutting-edge research. This course will apply an evidence-based approach to palliative care. Students will develop the skills needed to evaluate evidence and improve care. Research is embedded into every module. At MSc level, students can conduct their own research to inform clinical practice and service development and contribute to the evidence base. This course is suitable for those who want to make significant contributions to patient and family care and to influence palliative care policy locally, nationally and internationally. Many have used this course to progress their careers from specialist training registrars in palliative medicine to challenging and exciting consultant posts in hospital, hospice and community settings, and a growing number of clinical nurse specialists are now nurse consultants. Increasing numbers go on to conduct PhDs in palliative care related areas and the course has given some exciting opportunities to conduct high quality research which has successfully been disseminated at scientific meetings or high quality, peer-reviewed journals. This course incorporates leading research and innovative and evidence-based practice. It is delivered by the Cicely Saunders Institute in partnership with St Christopher’s Hospice.
