Pallium Canada LEAP Courses

Learning Essential Approaches to Palliative Care


Victoria Hospice is pleased to announce that we now host Pallium Canada’s LEAP Mini (by special request), LEAP Core and LEAP Online. LEAP stands for Learning Essential Approaches to Palliative Care.

The courses are facilitated by Victoria Hospice staff, who bring a unique approach by incorporating Victoria Hospice’s values and perspective to the curriculum.

LEAP Online

LEAP Online is a one-day course aimed at providing learners with the essential, basic competencies of the palliative care approach. This course is ideal for developing teamwork, promoting inter-professional collaboration, and promoting collaboration amongst providers in different agencies who need to work together (e.g community-based family physicians, home care nurses, community pharmacists).

Course Features
  • 16 self-directed and interactive online modules completed at your own pace (approximately 8 hours of work). 
  • One full day of online webinars led by LEAP facilitators. Learners will work through cases and discuss learnings from online modules. A Pallium team member will participate in the webinars to offer coordination and technical support.
  • Built by Canadian palliative care experts.
  • Participants will receive a LEAP certificate of completion and an electronic copy of the Pallium Palliative Pocketbook.
