Gain a Level 3 End of Life Care Qualification

The End of Life Care – Level 3 Certificate (RQF) Course is designed for students who want to increase their knowledge of end of life care and develop their comprehension of the factors and issues that relate to providing end of life care for patients.

The course will help students to reinforce their practice with theoretical knowledge and may also give students the opportunity to look at aspects of health and social care that they have not been involved with previously. This course has been created so it is accessible for study by non-specialists in this field, or it can also be used to complement practical work within a relevant work-place environment.

Please Note: Due to the nature of the qualification, the learner will need to be working in a health and social care environment in order to complete certain aspects of this course. There is no requirement that this is full time or paid employment.

On successful completion of the course students will receive a Level 3 Certificate Qualification with 16 credits issued by NCFE.

The End of Life Care – Level 3 Certificate (RQF) Course Includes the Following Units:
The first unit provides learners with an overview of the emotive issues surrounding death and dying. It also helps learners to understand palliative care and its place within end of life care, along with the support services available to the individual and others.
The second unit aims to give learners an understanding of the importance of communication when supporting an individual and others during end of life care.
The third unit aims to give the learner an understanding of the person centred approach to assessment and care planning within end of life care along with the legal implications of any advance care planning decisions.
This unit will inform learners of the person-centred approach to end of life care and how it ensures that the individual’s physical, emotional, social and cultural needs are met.
The final unit will assist learners to understand approaches to providing care in the approach to death and the final hours of care. It will also provide an understanding of the processes of loss and grief, how to support those who are bereaved and how to cope with own feeling of stress and grief.
