People living with serious, life-limiting, chronic illness experience significant suffering. Fortunately there are new and developing treatments which may cure some and improve survival for many people living with serious illness. However, seriously ill people and their loved ones still experience many distressing physical symptoms as well as spiritual, social and psychological distress. There is much we can do to support people to live well with serious and life-limiting illness by understanding the causes of suffering, using effective communications, and incorporating careful assessments and interventions designed to address specific needs. The Palliative Care: It’s not Just Hospice Specialization covers core concepts on the nature of suffering and demonstrates how to evaluate suffering and illustrates this in realistic patient scenarios. In subsequent weeks we learn and practice specific skills to improve communication with patients and families to help them express their experience, express and understand their core goals and values and our own empathic response. You will also learn about specific problems such as physical pain, fatigue and shortness of breath as well as psychological issues such as depression and anxiety. In addition, spiritual and social distress will be discussed with a focus on the practical evaluation and management of these challenges. All of these skills will enable you to support people to live active and full lives despite serious illness.

  • There are five courses. The first course introduces you to the basic palliative care principles, helps you understand suffering and to improve your communication skills with patients and families.

    Then you can take each of three courses that focus on Easing Pain, Easing Physical Symptoms and Easing Psychological, Spiritual, and Social Distress.

    The fifth course is a series of Capstone Projects that allow you to practice what you have been learning in the other four courses.In order to earn the Coursera Palliative Care Specialization Certificate in Palliative Care you will need to complete these projects.

  • Yes! This course could help you come up with better plans and ways to live well with serious or life-limiting illness. Also, this course can help you look for new sources of support and give you the language you need to help your healthcare team understand you and how you are feeling. This course offers you the opportunity to learn how to and ask for the kinds of support and services that you need.

  • Absolutely. You can take any of the courses that you are interested in. You can take these courses in the order that best meets your needs. We do recommend that you consider taking the Introduction to Palliative Care Course first since the communication skills training will help you be successful in the rest of the course.

  • You may work at your own speed but each course has four-five modules and each module takes about 3 hours to complete. If you take one module a week you can do most courses in a month and complete all five courses in four to five months.

  • In this Capstone Project Course you will complete five real world projects that will help you use the knowledge and skills you have been working on in this specialization. Each capstone project will take about an hour. The projects include using the “Nature of Suffering Evaluation Form” to talk with someone you know about their experiences with serious illness. Another involves completing a pain and non-pain symptom assessment and another project requires counseling someone about Advance Care Planning options. All of the tools you need for success are provided in the course. You should consider completing the Capstone Projects associated with the course you are working on while things are fresh. For example you could do the Pain Assessment Capstone project as soon as you compete the Easing Pain course. This is just a suggestion, as you can also work on the capstone projects after you complete the first four courses.
