The palliative care component will concentrate on holistic aspects related to physical, psychosocial and spiritual issues that impact upon the lives of the person/family with cancer. Students will use a health promoting and patient education framework to assess, plan and implement appropriate strategies to promote positive attitudes to living with cancer.
