Education in Palliative Care

Lorraine Dixon

Oxford University Press

Nurses represent a significant proportion of the health care workforce engaged in providing palliative care for patients with life-threatening illnesses and their families. As palliative care has developed and been acknowledged as a specialty, nurse education has been forced to be creative, resourceful, and proactive in providing nurse practitioners with the skills and knowledge that they require to support patients and their families when facing a life-threatening illness. This chapter outlines the trajectory of nurse education in the UK from pre-registration through to advanced nurse practitioners and describes current provision of palliative care education at pre- and post-registration levels. It also considers ways in which palliative nurse education is shaped by policy and explores current and future challenges facing practitioners and educators.
