Module Aims:
Palliative Medicine is the study and management of patients with active and progressive disease for whom the prognosis is limited and the focus of care is the quality of life of the patient, and not the cure of the underlying disease.
The overall aim of the module is to explore some of the psychological and sociological factors that influence cancer management, from the perspectives of the patient, the family or carer, and the health professionals involved in their care.

To recognise the skills and knowledge necessary for the effective control of symptoms, other than pain, in patients with life threatening disease in malignant & non malignant conditions.

To increase clinical skills & knowledge necessary for the effective control of symptoms, other than pain, in patients with life threatening disease in malignant & non malignant conditions.

In order to effectively deliver palliative care 3 main principles need to be adopted:
 
 1. expert symptom control is required
 2. a holistic approach to both patient and family is essential
 3. multidisciplinary team working is needed to effectively deliver the first 2 objectives 
 

Symptom control should, as in all other aspects of medicine, be evidence-based wherever possible. At times, given the nature of our patients’ disease and situations, this is not always achievable. This module aims to explore some of the issues surrounding the effective delivery of multi-professional palliative care to those patients with advanced disease, and in doing so examine the evidence-base for the management strategies and the validity of that evidence.
