Students learn the role of the Personal Support Worker (PSW) in providing palliative and end of life care to support clients, families, and significant others. Students examine the concepts of loss and grief, pain and symptom management through nonpharmacological comfort measures, and their personal feelings regarding loss. The PSW role related to the interprofessional team is examined.
Students registering for credit courses for the first time must declare a program at the point of registration. Declaring a program does not necessarily mean students must complete a program, individual courses may be taken for skill improvement and upgrading.
