Undergraduate Medical Education in Palliative Care – the EDUPALL Experience

EDUPALL together with EAPC, AHIIPC & PMU WHOCC and other partners, is offering a series of free online-lectures with leading palliative care clinicians and teachers.

We are delighted to present a series of free online-lectures based on The EDUPALL Erasmus project.  A group of international experts from Romania, Ireland, Germany, Belgium, Austria, UK and Spain had originally produced a ‘blended’ (combining  online educational materials with traditional place-based classroom methods) palliative care curriculum for medical students. The curriculum was based on the European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) recommendations and we had prepared all of the accompanying materials needed to deliver this novel programme.
