“As it is crucial to quality palliative care, we have integrated core psychosocial care competencies throughout all the curriculum“ – Dr. Mary Jane Esplen, Executive Director de Souza Institute, Professor, Dept of Psychiatry, U of Toronto
 
The Interprofessional Education in Palliative and End of Life Care-Oncology (iEPEC-O) online course is based on the internationally recognized EPECTM-O curriculum developed by a team of clinicians at Northwestern University in partnership with the National Cancer Institute in USA. Supported by de Souza Institute, the content is updated by a team of palliative care experts in Canada. This course is self-directed and covers a comprehensive curriculum in palliative and end-of-life care topics, including core competencies in symptom management, ethical issues, communication skills, bereavement and psychosocial care. Interactive activities and case studies are used to highlight clinical applications. The iEPEC-O course offers 13.0 CME learning hours.
