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 11th and Friday 12th July 2024.

You and your organization 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.

Organizations 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.

The course has been recorded (the link to recordings will be sent to delegates on July 29) - enabling you to watch at a time that suits you for 3 months. Recordings afford all participants an opportunity to pause, reflect, look up the reference or watch a section of the teaching again.

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.
