Worried that your medical knowledge may no longer be at the cutting edge, that you have not heard about the latest major advance or that your patients are missing out? Then, this is the course for you!

OxCERPC recognises the need for doctors working in palliative medicine to stay abreast of changes in medical practice. Each year we develop a bespoke programme - no two years are the same. We have successfully run this course since 2002.

Speakers are invited from other specialties in medicine, bringing their expertise to update our medical knowledge and enhance the practice of palliative medicine. This course complements the Oxford Advanced Pain and Symptom Management course.

Join the course and avail of opportunities to ask questions and be part of discussion. Alternatively, watch at a time that suits you! Recordings will be made available to all delegates, affording an opportunity to pause, reflect, look up the reference or watch a section of the teaching again.
