Course Description
Supporting clients and families experiencing progressive disease and life-limiting illness requires skillful and effective communication as part of a palliative approach to care. This workshop will focus on developing advanced skills for facilitating conversations associated with progressive and advanced disease transitions. These skills are transferable across clinical settings and populations. Emphasis will be placed on principles of effective communication and shared decision making, mitigating conflict and managing high emotional states, and strategies for sharing bad news and conducting serious illness conversations.

The workshop will address both the perspective of the client and family, and the health care professional. The goal of this course is to enhance the health care professional’s effectiveness and confidence in supporting clients and their families going through transitions associated with progressive disease and life-limiting illness.

This course has been designed to provide a comprehensive, evidence-based education experience for Nurses, Clinical Nurse Specialists, Nurse Practitioners, and other health care professionals for whom palliative care is not the main focus of their clinical practice.
