During the morning session, we will consider the philosophy of palliative care and look at the variety of holistic therapies that are safe and appropriate for use in palliative care. The benefits and cautions/contra-indications will be discussed in general terms. There will be time for questions and sharing of relevant experiences.
During the afternoon session we will explore some case studies and use these as a learning tool. We will also share some simple touch techniques to demonstrate how holistic therapies are adapted for use in palliative care. As this is an introductory course, it is important that delegates have plenty of resources for further information and Mary will provide a suggested reading list.
