The course is designed to refresh or develop team members’ communication skills to provide quality end-of-life and palliative care in long term care homes. The modules include interactive case scenarios that reflect the unique setting and context of care delivery in long-term care homes.


Three self-paced online modules around 20 minutes in length each.

  1. Communicating about Hospice Palliative Care
  2. Coping with Grief
  3. Building Relationships

This eLearning course gives the learner many parts of the in-person training. It allows all team members to dispel palliative care myths, learn how to recognize and accommodate the needs of those in mourning, and practice their end-of-life communication skills in three short, scenario-based modules.
