Final two modules released of children’s palliative care in Humanitarian Settings e-learning course
Many health care workers in crises situations are unfamiliar with even the basic principles of children’s palliative care and there is an urgent need to train and equip health workers to provide palliative care for children in such situations. Therefore ICPCN (International Children’s Palliative Care Network) and PallCHASE (Palliative Care in Humanitarian Aid Situations and Emergencies) have collaborated to develop a new e-learning course that aims to bridge this knowledge and skills gap by providing an overview of key palliative care practices for clinicians in humanitarian settings, including war and conflict, natural disasters, protracted crises, and complex emergencies.
The first two modules were published in 2022 and the final two modules have just been released. The course’s online learning system provides learners with an interactive learning experience. Each module includes case studies to contextualise learning, video, and audio clips, opportunities for reflection, knowledge quizzes, numerous links, and a wealth of additional resources. At the end of each module, there is a brief final assessment and once successfully completed, learners receive a certificate of completion for the module.
