Palliative Care Intensive

An Intermediate-Advanced Course


Victoria Hospice’s Palliative Care Intensive (PCI) course covers intermediate and some advanced aspects of palliative care. It provides a continued learning opportunity for:

  • Family physicians or new palliative care physicians
  • Nurses from palliative care, home care, or long-term care facilities
  • Family practice residents
  • Pharmacists
  • Medical students with an interest in palliative care
  • And others with a professional interest in palliative care
  • Continuing Professional Development credits pending approval by the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the BC Chapter.
  • Pre-Requisites

    Following a recent renewal and revision of the materials, the content now addresses intermediate and some advanced professional competencies. Therefore we strongly encourage learners to take the LEAP Core Program prior to attending our event.

    Please consult the Pallium Canada website for the topics and competencies addressed by LEAP Core. If you have not taken LEAP Core, but have taken another program or certification that has provided you with the foundational content of palliative care, please contact us to discuss.

PCI Online Features

  • Self-directed modules and video lectures to be completed at your own pace
  • Two days of live webinars with our facilitators in which you will engage in case groups, discussions and activities.
  • Participants will receive a certificate of completion
