Host: RCPI
Location: Online learning (currently free of charge)
CPD: 10 external CPD points


In recognition of the exceptional challenges faced by front line healthcare workers at this time, the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland is making this course available to all healthcare professionals free of charge for the duration of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This online course, aimed at doctors who are decision makers in end-of-life care, is designed to develop confidence in advance care planning.

Caring for people at the end of life is an important part of your role as a doctor. Unfortunately studies show that people often receive end-of-life care that is inconsistent with their wishes and does not meet their needs.

Every patient's needs are unique and working through the emotional and social stresses faced by a dying person and their family can be difficult.

You will develop a better understanding of your role and that of other members of the multidisciplinary team. You will also learn about promoting greater choice, control and communication of care preferences across the team, across agencies and across care settings.
