The ECEPC is an accredited course for medical and nursing staff, paramedics and allied health professionals who would like a qualification in palliative care. Course delegates need to be qualified in their fields and have direct contact with patients receiving end-of-life care.

The course is run entirely as a distance learning course and the assessment has been adapted to be undertaken remotely. It is co-ordinated by Princess Alice Hospice and run by various hospices around the country, including Heart of Kent Hospice.

The course costs £450, takes place twice a year in the spring and autumn over 8 – 12 weeks. The autumn dates are 14 September 2020 – 11 November 2020.

For more information please download the attached files. Please be aware, the course information was written and published before the coronavirus pandemic so a few adjustments have been made to how the course and the assessment day are run.
