(p.147) Chapter 16 Small Group and One-to-one Teaching
Education in Palliative Care

John Costello

Oxford University Press

The primary role of education relating to palliative care is focused on improving practice and hence changing behaviours through the use of appropriate teaching and learning strategies. Moreover, traditional teaching methods with a reliance on passive forms of learning are inappropriate for palliative care practitioners who need active participation in their learning in order to acquire the necessary communication skills to improve their practice. This chapter describes and examines the role of the teacher as a group facilitators, small group and individual teaching strategies relevant to palliative care, and the role of the teacher conducting individual learning supervision. This chapter's author's experiences as a palliative care educator, and those of colleagues involved in this area for many years, are used to highlight aspects of teaching relevant to small group work.
