The Oxford Advanced Pain and Symptom Management Course – Webinar
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.
Organisations get value for money as the course delivers high standards of professional knowledge, is educationally sound allowing staff time for discussion and supports staff in setting continuing educational goals for the year following the course.

The team in Oxford are looking forward to the welcoming you to the 2020 Oxford Advanced Courses. We are committed to providing the same high quality of education that you have come to expect from us. We think that there is no choice but to move on to a web platform for this year, for logistical reasons and to ensure that you are as safe as possible.
We have adapted the programme so that you can avail of two blocks that have 4 lectures in each block. You may choose to book either block (£150 for four lectures) or you may prefer to book both and avail of the discount (£250 for all eight). To avail of the discount put both webcast blocks in your basket and apply the code ‘Both-blocks’ during checkout and payment.
If your organisation is booking 10 places for staff please contact us. In recognition of a large booking we are offering you a 10% discount on 10 places (one free)
We will record the lecture. We have chosen the time carefully but understand that busy clinicians may get caught up. If you miss the lecture you will still be able to avail of the education – we are delighted that the Royal College of Physicians has clearly stated that they will honour CPD points even if the delegate misses the live lecture.
We look forward to meeting virtually!
