Welcome to the Palliative Care Course for Therapists!

The aim of this 2.5-day course is to equip occupational therapists (OT), physiotherapists (PT) and speech & language therapists (ST) across all settings with professional competency and confidence of therapists with the necessary knowledge to work with patients and families facing life-threatening illnesses.

Preliminary topics include clinical overview of common life-limiting illnesses, serious illness communication, basic symptom management, role of PT / OT / ST in management of patients with progressive life-limiting illness and integration of these therapies into the holistic management of such patients.
