What is the Perinatal and Neonatal Palliative Care course about?

Perinatal palliative care encompasses holistic care of the fetus or newborn baby diagnosed with a life-limiting condition either in pregnancy or soon after delivery and includes providing support to the parents, siblings, and other close family members. It requires timely decision-making, planning and a focus on improving their quality of life through a continuum of care from diagnosis, through death and into the bereavement period. The modules and topics within this course include:

  • Introduction to perinatal palliative care
  • Providing palliative care in the antenatal period
  • Care and support during labour and immediately after delivery
  • Care and support during the neonatal period
  • Key considerations in perinatal palliative care

Course Review

Why take the course?

“Overall, it’s a fantastic course on an essential and delicate topic. I really enjoyed learning from it, and it is presented so beautifully. I appreciated the inclusion of genetic counselling and found the section on debriefing and self-care so important. The course was structured and presented well, and it is clear that it was thought through and carefully curated. Well done on a fantastic course!”
