Educational Support for RPN's Caring for Palliative Patients


RPNs play a crucial role in palliative and end of life care. Delivering the best possible care fo
r palliative patients during their most critical life moments is not easy. Having the confidence and know-how often comes from additional training and education.

de Souza Institute, in partnership with MOHLTC, Cancer Care Ontario and University Health Network, is supporting health care professionals through interactive, online education and training. We translate evidence based practice in palliative care into online content that is directly relevant to your clinical practice.

Through our eLearning format, RPNs and other health care professionals have the option to learn around their busy schedules- at their own time, at their own pace.
Whether you are a RPN that works in the community, hospital or long-term care facility, the Institute offers a number of courses to support patients' needs and complex issues.

These courses include: 
A full list of courses can be found on de Souza Institute'swebsite.

In partnership with Lambton College, de Souza Institute also offers the Registered Practical Nurse (RPN) Oncology (with Palliative Care Stream) Ontario Graduate Certificate.

The certificate program is designed for RPNs who aspire to the palliative care or oncology nursing scope of practice. Offered through the School of Part-Time Studies, RPNs can register here.
