The palliative care workstream within the NIHR-funded ASSET programme has launched a free online training programme for health professionals, caregivers and family members. COVID-19 has reduced access to formal health services such as clinics. This course will teach basic palliative care skills so that the patient can be cared for in the community.

Access is free and open to all health professionals, caregivers and family members of patients needing palliative care and can be accessed via the University of Cape Town’s learning platform Vula. Participants will also qualify to earn CPD points.

Registration is now open until end of April 2021 and you can sign up by contacting Kerene Payne at .
