Overview

The Postgraduate Certificate in Palliative Care develops health practitioners' skills in palliative care and introduces palliative care as a research field. Students gain the knowledge and understanding needed to provide a holistic approach to the assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation of the needs of patients, family, and whānau living with a life-limiting condition.

UC's Health Sciences qualifications give health professionals, non-clinical members of the health workforce, and others interested in the health sector or health issues the opportunity to examine critically a range of significant issues in health sciences, and where relevant, improve their professional practice.
