We're very pleased to announce a brand new Masterclass in Palliative Care 1-day CPD course, run in association with renowned palliative care educators, Sobell House.

Sobell House has previously run highly regarded courses in Palliative Care with other universities, and is known for its Oxford Advanced Course in Pain and Symptom Management course, which has run for over thirty years.

We are delighted to be working with them to bring a masterclass to Cardiff, based on this internationally renowned course. Dr Fiona Rawlinson, Reader/Programme Director Palliative Care Postgraduate Education at Cardiff University, and Dr Mary Miller from Sobell House, Oxford have collaborated to develop a 1-day CPD course, designed for experienced doctors and nurses who are practising in palliative care or interested in developing their skills in this field of medicine.

Topics covered in the masterclass will include:

  • Liver disease and palliative care patients
  • The management of neuropathic pain
  • An update on cough
  • Snippets of interest for practice (extracts from the Oxford Advanced Course in Pain and
  • Symptom Management 2019)
  • The Cardiff lecture: The interplay between anorexia, cancer cachexia and treatment’
  • Professor Anthony Byrne

This is a fantastic opportunity to enhance your knowledge and skills in Palliative Care, as well as network and share ideas with colleagues and peers.

The masterclass will run on Friday 29 November, and is expected to be very popular. Take a look at the course page for all the details you need.
