The Oxford Advanced Pain and Symptom Management Course
This course is amongst the UK’s leading courses for palliative care nurses, pharmacists and doctors. For over 30 years it has delivered cutting edge knowledge and skills to healthcare practitioners so they can provide their patients with the best possible care. Dr Mary Miller has led the course since 2008, developing a unique course each year.
In 2020, 350 delegates joined from across the globe. 40% joined the live recordings. Delegates fed back that they really enjoyed being able to watch the recording when it suited them or re watch the recordings to cement learning. In 2021 we are going to be virtual again - keeping you safe! It also affords an opportunity for us to ask international speakers - go global to bring you the best educators.
Dates : June 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th: Each Tuesday live lecture from 4.30pm (BST)
and July 2nd - afternoon programme of 4 lectures
