Experiences of Teaching Palliative Care

Teachers play a crucial role in PC education. Teachers are expected to organise learning, know the subject area and state of the art, be willing to learn, lead by example, and embody and practise the principles of palliative care. Equipping teachers with evidence-based curricula, clearly defined teaching objectives, method cases and performance assessment strategies should facilitate palliative care education in medical schools.
