The Center for Palliative Care Education is an educational resource center and training program.
Our mission is to improve palliative care for people with HIV/AIDS by increasing the knowledge, skills, and comfort level of clinicians to provide this care.
We develop training modules and accompanying materials on HIV/AIDS palliative care. The materials we create, although focused on HIV, are designed to be applicable to other life-threatening illnesses. The modules cover the following topics:
Module 1: Overview of HIV/AIDS Palliative Care (PDF)
Module 2: Advance Care Planning (PDF)
Module 3: Communicating with Patients & Families about End-of-Life Care (PDF)
Module 4: Cross-Cultural Issues in HIV/AIDS Palliative Care (PDF)
Module 5: Pain & Symptom Management (PDF)
Module 6: Psychosocial & Psychiatric Issues (PDF)
Module 7: Pediatric HIV/AIDS Palliative Care (PDF)
Module 8: Care of the HIV Positive Patient in the Correctional Setting (PDF)
Module 9: HIV and Hepatic Failure (PDF)
