Interprofessional Education in Palliative and End-of-Life Care - Oncology (iEPEC-O) (EOLC)


This self-directed online course covers a comprehensive curriculum in palliative and end-of-life care topics, including core competencies in symptom management, ethical issues and communication skills in palliative care. The program is adapted from EPEC™-O Canada materials and the original EPEC™-O (Education in Palliative and End-of-Life Care for Oncology) course funded by the National Cancer Institute.

The vision of the iEPEC-O online course is to support all health care providers who care for people with cancer and other serious illnesses, and help in the delivery of high quality palliative and end-of life-care to patients and families wherever they live. The course builds on the strength of the existing workshop based curriculum and incorporates recommendations from “The Way Forward” report on person centred approaches. It enhances learning outcomes by leveraging powerful online graphic illustration, interactive activities and audio-visual demonstration of core palliative care competencies.

This continuing education event is held under the auspices of Continuing Professional Development, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto and de Souza Institute, University Health Network.
