Education in Palliative Care

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces some theoretical underpinning for the view of interprofessional education in palliative care; discusses the meaning of care in an interprofessional context; suggests ways of developing a shared vision of care; and discusses ways in which one can learn about the delivery of interprofessional care. It also argues that professional caregivers must be responsive to the range of needs of the dying patient and their family. In doing so, they will perform a variety of work, some clearly determined by their scope of practice, but much determined by the unique needs of the patient at any given time. The discussion also suggests that the patient's needs are to be discovered in the patient narrative and ideally lead to a shared vision of care.
