Doing a course in palliative care (seeking ideas)
Jan 20, 2014
I will be doing an e-learning on palliative care for staff at residential homes. It will cover things like how to relieve the patients symptoms (pain, nausea etc.), how to take care of the patient, how to communicate with the patient and his or her relatives and also things like the importance of actually touching the patient and fulfilling his or hers religious needs before dying.
My idea is to let the user follow a patient chronologically from when he/she gets terminally ill until the person dies and the aftermath of that. I'm thinking scenarios and simulations along the way to convey the material.
Do you have any ideas on how to improve the course, or a new idea altogether? All input is welcome!
