About the course

The aim of this study day is to review the core components of psychosocial and spiritual care, considering how people can be effectively supported at the end of life. It will consist of an overview of definitions and principles of care and provide an opportunity to explore scenarios that link the theory to clinical practice.

  • Be able to recognise and respond to an individual’s concerns, fears and anxieties
  • Be able to provide emotional and psychological support to individuals to maintain comfort and well-being
  • Understand the importance of relationships as a person nears the end of life, and be able to support a dying person to maintain these relationships
  • Understand the significance of diversity including the impact that an individual’s beliefs, customs, faith, life circumstances, religion, social norms, spirituality, sexuality and values can have on their preferences, their choices and the care provided, and be able to assess and support these needs and preferences.
