The Oxford Advanced Pain and Symptom Management Course © – Virtual

Welcome to the virtual course! Over 400 people attended the Oxford Advanced courses in 2023 - the majority attended virtually. Your feedback tells us that the format is very valuable. We are developing the programme and will have more information soon.

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.

The virtual course is the actual recording of the 2-day face to face course.  You will be sent the Youtube  link of this on 29 July and can watch at leisure as many times as you wish up to October 29, 2024.  You will also be sent slides and reading list.
