Hospice Peterborough’s Palliative Pain and Symptom Management Consultation Service (PPSMCS) offers three courses each year. To get more information on these courses and when they are offered or to register please contact Louise Golledge at Hospice Peterborough.

Fundamentals of Hospice Palliative Care is a six week certificate program for all health care providers who want to become more comfortable discussing death and dying. Graduates will have an increased awareness of and sensitivity to the unique issues that palliative clients and their families face.

Enhanced Fundamentals of Hospice Palliative Care is offered to RNs, RPNs, and NPs who have completed the Fundamentals Core and want to further develop their capacity related to hospice palliative care.

The Comprehensive Advanced Palliative Care Education (CAPCE) Program is offered to RPNs, RNs, and NPs. This five month program combines the “art” and “science” of Hospice Palliative Care. CAPCE focuses on the development and role of the nurse as a Hospice Palliative Care resource for the interprofessional team in long-term care homes, agencies, hospitals, and communities. The course takes a minimum of 18 weeks to complete. Eligibility for CAPCE includes successful completion of both the Core and Enhanced programs.
