DMU Undergraduate Modules and Programmes

DMU provides a number of undergraduate palliative care modules.  These can taken as single stand alone modules or combined with other modules within an undergraduate programme.

Joint Delivery between DMU and LOROS

DMU and the Leicestershire and Rutland Hospice (LOROS) have worked closely for a number of years.  This has recently been formalised by the creation of two joint programmes:

University Certificate of Professional Development (UCPD) in End of Life Care

This is a 60 credit degree level award. It consists of two 30 credit modules:
  • NMAH 3501: Fundamentals of Palliative Care
  • NMAH 3502: Enhancing Communication Skills in End of Life Care.

Either module can be undertaken on a standalone basis for continuing professional development purposes. 

Please note. Since neither of these two modules contain an assessed practice element they cannot be accessed as option modules within the 60-credit BSc Health and Professional Practice or the 120-credit BSc (Hons) Health and Professional Practice programme.

  • MSc Palliative Care
    This is a postgraduate programme of study. Students can access individual modules under a "stand alone" basis; accumulate 60 credits for a postgraduate certificate; 120 credit for a postgraduate diploma; or 180 credits for the MSc award.

Study opportunities within LOROS

In addition to the joint provision with DMU, LOROS provides a large range of LOROS study days and short courses open to health and social care professionals, volunteers and to members of the public.
