Postgraduate Palliative Care Education: Evaluation of a South African Programme (Original Articles)

Palliative care improves care for people throughout the course of progressive incurable illness. There has been a worldwide effort to increase and improve palliative care education. The World Health Organization (WHO) challenged training institutions to ensure that palliative care was compulsory and given high recognition. (1) Education programmes in training institutions have found palliative care programming to be patchy or non-existent in developed (2-6) and developing nations. (7,8) As palliative care is in its infancy in South Africa, medical schools are only beginning to teach it now at undergraduate level, and do not offer postgraduate palliative care programmes. In response to this lack of educational offerings, UCT began a postgraduate distance palliative care education programme for doctors in 2000. The programme, designed to be completed in 2-3 years, offers a diploma and a master’s of philosophy degree. Assignments are e-mailed to students and, in their first 2 years, students also attend a 3-day face-to-face instruction workshop. Master’s students complete a research study. (9)
