Caring for people in the final period of their lives is a challenging and rewarding part of our work as GPs.

The course covers some of the key issues in palliative and end of life care in the community, including pain management, prescribing in the final days of life and holding the difficult conversations.

Free to EoE GP Trainees there will also be an opportunity to contribute to interactive sessions and group work to discuss recent or difficult cases.
