The Oxford Advanced Pain and Symptom Management Course © in Oxford – Face to Face
Back face-to-face at the Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford, on Thursday 6th and Friday 7th July 2023.
You and your organisation may want to be aware that we plan to run a virtual course as well as face to face courses in Oxford and Newcastle.
This course is amongst the UK’s leading courses for palliative care nurses, pharmacists and doctors. For nearly 40 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.
