Level 3 Certificate in the Principles of End of Life Care

Course Overview

In 2015, only half of the people who expressed their home as their preferred place to die actually died in their own home. In the same year, hospices were ranked the highest in terms of the quality of care provided during the difficult end of life period. Care homes were ranked a close second, followed by individuals' homes in third, and finally hospitals in last place. This period in a person’s life is, without a doubt, the most sensitive and difficult to deal with due to the emotional and physical strain it places on the individual and their family, as well as any carers or staff members who work with the individual.

Our End of Life Level 3 course will provide extensive knowledge and understanding of end of life care. Explore themes and common core principles for end of life care and the range of possible approaches to this care. This qualification will provide information on how to support a person’s familial, spiritual, social and emotional needs and will prepare for confronting issues of death and bereavement within a role.
