Welcome to ICPCN’s e-learning programme. The ICPCN has recognised the need to make training on children’s palliative care accessible and affordable to all who need training. Thus we are developing several short courses as part of a longer term strategy of providing elearning programmes on children’s palliative care.
Our courses are helpful to professionals and lay people working with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. We have developed several short courses
as part of a longer term strategy of providing e-learning programmes on all aspects of children’s palliative care. Some or all of the courses are presently available in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian, Mandarin and Dutch.
Our e-learning modules have a theoretical and clinical component. You can choose to do just the theoretical component if you so wish.
Should you wish to improve your knowledge and understanding of children’s palliative care without leaving home, the ICPCN’s e-learning certificate courses will keep you up-todate with the latest information in the field.
The following courses are currently available:
- Introduction to children’s palliative care
