Palliative Care webinar series

We are delighted to announce that the School of Medicine's Palliative Care team is bringing back their popular webinar series for 2022-23.

The 2022-23 programme includes three series of webinars, the first of which is designed for District Nurses, but will also be relevant for anyone involved in diagnosing and understanding palliative care.

Sessions include communication and advance care planning, symptom control and collaborative working.

Sessions will run online (13:00-14:30) and will be led by Dr Fiona Rawlinson, Programme Director of Postgraduate Palliative Medicine at Cardiff University, and Dr Jo Hayes, Medical Director of Marie Curie Hospice Cardiff and the Vale. Fiona and Jo also lecture on the University's MSc in Palliative Care.

This series is free (kindly funded by Cardiff and Vale University Healthboard) but you do need to register to attend. Further webinar programmes aimed at care home staff and GPs will run in 2023.
