A Training Centre for Palliative Care
Dover Park Hospice aspires to be a centre of excellence for palliative care education and research. Currently, we not only train medical and nursing students on attachments with us, we also conduct courses throughout the year to support the continuous professional development of palliative care doctors and nurses in Singapore. To name a few, we organize courses such as Certificate in Basic Palliative Care Nursing and Specialist Diploma in Palliative Care Nursing (in partnership with Ngee Ann Polytechnic and National Cancer Centre).
We also take pride in ensuring the continuous upgrading of skills and knowledge of our own healthcare staff. Talks and tutorials are conducted every week in Dover Park Hospice to share new insights and developments in the field, so that our healthcare personnel can constantly better themselves in their care and support to our patients.
Even our volunteers are not left behind. Training sessions are provided to help our volunteers understand our patients better and learn how to care for them. Please click here for more information about volunteer training.
