The Palliative Care eLearning Program contains 7 different components in the following sequence:
- An introductory face-to-face seminar or online webinar where you will meet your online colleagues and discuss basic palliative care principles.
- 3 web-based modules in which 2 clinical cases unfold for collaborative knowledge building on the topic of pain.
- A second face-to-face seminar or online webinar where participants discuss symptoms other than pain.
- 2 web-based modules in which 2 clinical cases unfold for collaborative knowledge building; 1 case involves a patient with end-stage heart disease and the other involves a patient in the last days and hours of life.
Case-based collaborative discussion for each module will be done in Knowledge Forum (KF), for approx. 1 month per module. All KF discussions will be facilitated by a palliative care expert. Plan to devote approximately 4 hours per month working on this program. Time will be spent individually reading and researching, and collectively knowledge building online. The two face-to-face seminars/webinars will be scheduled on a weekend for a half day.
