Once completed you will immediately be able to download your pass certificate. (Your new accredited certificate will be posted to you within 8 weeks.)
The nationally recognised and accredited certificate (awarded by the Open College Network) can be added to your existing certificate credit value (cumulative credits), and these may also count towards other similar college or university courses.


This course provides a nationally recognised award in End of Life Care and particularly focuses on Palliative Care. If you are looking to work in a care environment (care home, visiting home care worker, healthcare assistant or care support worker) then this advanced certificate provides recognition of your continued study in this field.

This course can also be combined with our Healthcare Practice - Fundamental Care Skills Course which will prepare you with a general foundation qualification on healthcare. Both qualifications will give you a total of 6 credits which you can also use towards other future qualifications (and many UK Colleges and Universities)


At the end of each e-learning section you have up to 6 multiple choice questions to answer, with a passmark of 65%. You can re-sit each section up to 2 times.

This course is suitable for you if:

You already have a foundation qualification on healthcare or you are working in a healthcare environment (care home, hospital etc.) and would like to enhance your qualifications in this subject area.


You are looking for employment in a Care Home, Hospice, Geriatric Unit or Hospital and need a specific qualification to add to your CV.
