Free online learning modules from Pallium

(March 31, 2020) 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.

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, as health care teams work tirelessly to keep Canadians safe amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

Information on the modules, and how to access them can be found here:
