Palliative Care Course for Social Workers (Advanced)

LCPC

OVERVIEW

LCPC proposes an advanced structured course to train social workers from community and hospital settings to deliver appropriate and effective end-of-life psychosocial care.

A supervision component will be incorporated into the course to facilitate learning in an authentic environment.
