General Medicine for Palliative Care Physicians
This annual course complements the Oxford Advanced Pain and Symptom Management courses.
In the delivery of palliative care services, palliative medicine physicians come across patients with general medical problems in addition to palliative and end of life care problems. How good are you at dealing with these? Do you need to update your knowledge and skills in these areas?
This course addresses general medical topics with the majority of speakers drawn from outside the field of palliative medicine.
