The Oxford Advanced Pain and Symptom Management Course © in Newcastle – Face to Face

Back face-to-face at the Newcastle Civic Centre,  on Thursday 6th and Friday 7th June 2024.

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.

PLEASE NOTE: we no longer take payments over the telephone. Please pay at checkout, or via online banking/PayPal (or request an invoice). Thank you.
