In-Country Professional Education

Our In-Country Professional Education activities include sensitization presentations, classroom and bedside training courses.

To build in-country knowledge and skills, the IPMSDH International Programs offer a variety of in-country professional education programs customized to fit with participants’ training needs, cultural values and the contexts within which they practice. IPMSDH also trains physicians and other clinicians who want to be palliative care consultants/master teachers/opinion leaders in their own country.

Sensitization workshops offered over 2-3 days build health professionals’ awareness of the importance of palliative care and their knowledge of core palliative care competencies. A three-week Introductory Bedside-Training Course provides more in-depth instruction on the basic palliative care knowledge and skills needed to effectively care for patients. A 2-3 week Advanced Bedside-Training Course provides more in-depth learning. Both are based on the internationally recognized EPEC and EPEC-oncology curricula that were largely developed by IPMSDH faculty with input from hundreds of bioethics and palliative care experts.
