For 30 years it has delivered cutting edge knowledge and skills to healthcare practitioners so they can provide their patients with the best possible care.

The team in Oxford are looking forward to the welcoming you to the 2019 Oxford Advanced Courses. The venues are booked and the programme is nearly complete.
Each year, with the colleagues around the country I build the programme layer by layer. I select a list of topics that are important and current keeping an eye to areas of palliative care that we have not covered for many years. Each year’s programme is unique aiming to provide the most up to date knowledge and evidence about every topic.
Once the outline programme is agreed then the search starts for speakers who can bring you their expertise. I work with the speakers so that they are briefed about your needs and the educational ethos of the course i.e. time to reflect and ask questions.
Then I start thinking about resources you can take from your two days of learning and with which you can continue learning for the coming year. In 2019 I plan to put together a short video of the learning points that will support you in bringing your learning back to your patients and your colleagues.
Please come back to the website – I will add information about topics as I discuss with the speakers.
