TQUK Level 2 Certificate in the Principles of End-of-Life Care

Qualification overview

In 2012, 52% of all deaths occurred in a hospital, yet hospitals were ranked the lowest in terms of the overall quality of care provided during the end-of-life period. Hospices were ranked the highest in terms of the quality of care and care homes were not far behind. This course aims to improve the quality of end-of-life care that is provided to individuals across all settings.
