Palliative Care for Complementary Therapists

Having worked as a complementary therapist within the NHS, I would like to share my experience and knowledge of palliative care with you. By the end of your course you will have a good insight into the palliative care setting and the confidence to work with people at a critical time in their lives to offer them support, dignity and wellbeing.
