Patient Participation in Palliative Care

This chapter discusses education in palliative care and the need to include the patients. It looks at the user involvement in interprofessional learning and in a communication skills course, as well as including bereaved people as users. The chapter discusses the different experiences of loss and reflects on involving users as part of palliative care education. It shows that the relationship between patients, students, and their teachers is potentially one of equal partnership, because the students and teachers need the patients as much as the patients need the doctors, nurses, and other trained health workers.

Keywords:   education, palliative care, user involvement, interprofessional learning, communication skills, bereaved people, experiences of loss
