Pallium, in collaboration with the Canadian Medical Association (CMA), is providing free access to essential education on palliative care for all health care professionals in response to this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic.
Across Canada, our health care teams are working tirelessly to help keep Canadians safe amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Pallium and CMA believe it is more important than ever for frontline health care professionals and teams to be equipped with the knowledge, tools, and skills to provide a palliative care approach to patients and their families.
For the next 3 months, Pallium and CMA have made 6 Learning Essential Approaches to Palliative Care (LEAP) modules available for free to all health care professionals. In doing so, we hope to contribute much needed education resources to the dedicated health care teams across Canada and ensure patients with life-limiting illnesses, and their families, receive the care they need. These modules, currently only available in English, are self-directed and completed at the learner’s own pace.
We are calling on our community of facilitators, coordinators, partners, and stakeholders to help spread the word that these free, online modules are available to all health care professionals across Canada. Information on the modules, and how to access them can be found here: www.pallium.ca/course/covid-19-response-free-online-modules
