Оценки: 3
Рецензии: 1
Palliative care provides invaluable help for patients living with serious or life-limiting illness and their family caregivers. Palliative care should be part of healthcare services to improve quality of life, the ability to tolerate and benefit from treatment and improve survival. In this course, you will learn about the nature of suffering and how this concept can help you understand the experience of people living with serious illness. Next, you will learn skills to more effectively communicate with patients, families and other care providers to both understand their experiences and provide an extra layer of support. In the next module you will explore your own core values and beliefs and how they impact your work with others. Finally, you will learn how to do a whole person assessment to understand the needs of people with serious illness so you can develop a plan to support them. You will be able to immediately use these insights, skills and tools in your work with people living with serious illness. In later courses, you will learn to ease pain and other symptoms, such as loss of appetite, shortness of breath and fatigue. In the final course, you will explore ways to ease psycho-social-spiritual distress. These courses will prepare you to bring basic palliative care to all in need....

Курс3

Easing Physical Symptoms: It's Not Just Hospice Anymore

Palliative care provides important support for people living with serious or life-limiting illnesses and their family caregivers. In this course, you will learn to use symptom assessment tools to better understand which symptoms are present and which are most distressing. In subsequent weeks you will learn about some of the most common and distressing symptoms such as anorexia (loss of appetite), dyspnea (shortness of breath), fatigue (weakness), delirium(confusion) and constipation and nausea/vomiting. For each of these symptoms, you will learn about the underlying cause and potential ways to support people and their families to manage the symptoms with simple practical and non-medical approaches as well as a review of medications as appropriate. In addition, you will learn to help people with their emotional response to symptoms and loss of function. You will be able to immediately use these insights, skills, and tools in your work with people living with serious illness. In other courses, you will learn communication skills, whole person assessment, how to ease physical pain and explore ways to ease psycho-social-spiritual distress....
Курс4

Psychosocial and Spiritual Aspects of Palliative Care

In this course, you’ll learn how serious and life-threatening illnesses often affect emotional and spiritual well-being. Illnesses can increase stress as patients and families learn to live with a “new normal” that may often focus on illness. You’ll learn how to tell when normal sadness (or grief) becomes something more serious and needs to be addressed. People with serious illnesses also have social concerns as their family, friends and community support system becomes stretched, and sometimes fails. We’ll talk about resources and skills you can use to help support patients and families. You’ll learn about advance care planning, that includes shared decision-making, setting goals of care, and writing down plans for care....

  • Это полностью дистанционный курс, потому вам не нужно ничего посещать. Все лекции, материалы для самостоятельного изучения и задания доступны всегда и везде по Интернету и с мобильных устройств.

  • Эта специализация не приравнивается к зачету в университетах, однако некоторые вузы принимают сертификаты на свое усмотрение. Дополнительную информацию уточняйте в своем деканате.

  • What is the significance of saying, “It’s not Just Hospice Anymore” In hospice care, we learned that hospice can provide support and symptom relief to people living with serious and life-limiting illness. We also learned the important lesson that the earlier support the better the result! Ideally, by providing palliative care from the time of diagnosis we can improve patient and family quality of life. And now, studies show this that palliative care provided earlier, can and does, improve overall survival rates. In this course, you will learn more about palliative care and be able to apply this knowledge gained in the course to your work or in your life, now. This course has been developed by the Coursera Palliative Care Team. Members of this team come from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, and teach such courses as the Interprofessional Graduated Palliative Care Certificate Program and Interprofessional Master of Science in Palliative Care Degree Program.

    You can make a difference in someone’s life today!

  • There are five courses. The first course introduces you to the basic palliative care principles, helps you understand suffering and to improve your communication skills with patients and families.

    Then you can take each of three courses that focus on Easing Pain, Easing Physical Symptoms and Easing Psychological, Spiritual, and Social Distress.

    The fifth course is a series of Capstone Projects that allow you to practice what you have been learning in the other four courses.In order to earn the Coursera Palliative Care Specialization Certificate in Palliative Care you will need to complete these projects.

  • Yes! This course could help you come up with better plans and ways to live well with serious or life-limiting illness. Also, this course can help you look for new sources of support and give you the language you need to help your healthcare team understand you and how you are feeling. This course offers you the opportunity to learn how to and ask for the kinds of support and services that you need.

  • Absolutely. You can take any of the courses that you are interested in. You can take these courses in the order that best meets your needs. We do recommend that you consider taking the Introduction to Palliative Care Course first since the communication skills training will help you be successful in the rest of the course.

  • You may work at your own speed but each course has four-five modules and each module takes about 3 hours to complete. If you take one module a week you can do most courses in a month and complete all five courses in four to five months.

  • In this Capstone Project Course you will complete five real world projects that will help you use the knowledge and skills you have been working on in this specialization. Each capstone project will take about an hour. The projects include using the “Nature of Suffering Evaluation Form” to talk with someone you know about their experiences with serious illness. Another involves completing a pain and non-pain symptom assessment and another project requires counseling someone about Advance Care Planning options. All of the tools you need for success are provided in the course. You should consider completing the Capstone Projects associated with the course you are working on while things are fresh. For example you could do the Pain Assessment Capstone project as soon as you compete the Easing Pain course. This is just a suggestion, as you can also work on the capstone projects after you complete the first four courses.

  • Absolutely. We have worked to make this Coursera Specialization culturally aware. You can learn basic palliative care skills that can be used in settings around the world. We look forward to learning from you how we can make this program better.

    The Palliative Care programs at the University of Colorado - Anschutz Medical Campus described in the previous FAQ above are open to International Students.

  • This is basic or primary palliative care. No special training or background knowledge is needed. Join with us now.

  • You can start anytime. If you need to take a break you can always come back and finish.

  • You will be able to integrate primary palliative care skills and practice into your work as a healthcare provider. For instance, nurses and physicians and others, would be able to use what they learned to help ease pain and other physical symptoms. Also you should talk with your employer about your studies and share with them in your success. Most healthcare systems don’t have enough trained palliative care providers. You can be a resource to your patients, colleagues, healthcare system and community. Thank you for considering palliative care.
