Who is the course for?

To introduce healthcare support workers and adult social care workers to the end of life care principle, which will enable them to understand the delivery of palliative care to assist a person to live well until the end of their life

End of life care is care that:

Helps all those with advanced, progressive, incurable illness to live as well as possible until they die.

Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual.

Palliative care:

• Provides relief from pain and other distressing symptoms;

• Affirms life and regards dying as a normal process;

• Intends neither to hasten or postpone death; • Integrates the psychological and spiritual aspects of patient care;

• Offers a support system to help patients live as actively as possible until death;

• Offers a support system to help the family cope during the patient’s illness and in their own bereavement;

• Uses a team approach to address the needs of patients and their families, including bereavement counselling, if indicated;

• Will enhance quality of life, and may also positively influence the course of illness;

• Is applicable early in the course of illness, in conjunction with other therapies that are intended to prolong life, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy, and includes those investigations needed to better understand and manage distressing clinical complications.

Spiritual Issues - when we think of pain, we tend to think of physical pain, but there are other types - emotional/psychological - which can take the form of depression, fear, guilt, anxiety. As a person faces death, they may struggle to find hope and make sense of what’s happening to them. Social - isolation from friends and family and life they had.

Religious pain - a real or perceived sense of disconnection from a belief system.

Cultural pain - an anguish at being disconnected from their country of origin or as a result of their customs, language or dietary requirements being disrespected or ignored. Key points

• Hope is a realistic desire for something good in the face of uncertainty

• Hope is not about denial or optimism

• Hope changes as the illness progresses

• A trusted, listening ear is the most helpful support, not someone who offers false reassurance

Hope shows itself in different ways at different stages of illness: Early in the disease there is hope of cure. As the illness progresses there is hope of control and hope for comfort at the end of life the hope often changes to one of peace and hope of a pain-free death.

Hope shows itself in different ways in different people: Some people are practical in their hope e.g. Hoping to avoid pain, tie up loose ends, or going home to die. Others are more generalised in their hope e.g. The hope to be at peace, to take 'each day as it comes', hope that they are valued, and a hope of 'letting go' at the end.
