PALLIATIVE CARE RESOURCES FOR HEALTHCARE EDUCATORS

Welcome teachers, workplace educators, practice leaders and more! Life & Death Matters is your partner for providing excellent competency-based palliative care education for PSWs and nurses. Our resources have been developed to support national and provincial healthcare competencies and are regularly reviewed and approved by various palliative care leaders. Since 2005, hundreds of colleges, universities, and organizations have chosen Life & Death Matters materials to support their teachers’ and students’ education.

We know that educators are busy. To help you provide the best education based on core palliative care competencies and decrease preparation time, we have prepared a host of companion teaching/learning resources including podcasts, videos, PPTs lecture notes, instructor’s guides and more to help with curriculum mapping.
