The Oxford Advanced Pain and Symptom Management Course – Face to Face

For 2022 you will have a choice, face-to-face or virtual lectures. That choice will enable delegates to choose the safest option for themselves,  availing of a first class education and managing their budget.

Book here for Face-to-face: Only 250 places will be available in the Blavatnik building for face-to-face learning. We have hired all of the basement lecture theatres so we can keep you as safe as possible, balancing the need for education and the potential need for social distancing.

Dates Face-to-face:  Thursday June 30th and Friday 1st July 2022

This course is amongst the UK’s leading courses for palliative care nurses, pharmacists and doctors. For nearly 35 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.

Any profits generated are ploughed back into education - as we are a charity.
