About the Course

In the Capstone Course you have the opportunity to put what you have been learning about in the Palliative Care Specialization into practice. Our team has created five activities that directly relate to what you have been learning in the course. You will need to talk with someone you know, perhaps a friend or family member, about their experiences living with serious and life limiting illness. You may want to engage several people as you go through the 5 assignments as they each will have unique experiences. The Five Assignments: 1) Use the Nature of Suffering Evaluation Form to guide your conversation with someone living with serious illness and report and reflect on how this illness is impacting different aspects of their lives. 2) Using SNAP/Self-Awareness skills explore the values of someone close to you and your own values as relate to health, illness and dying. 3) Using the WILDA tool complete a pain assessment with someone living with serious illness. 4) Using the ESAS tool complete a physical symptom assessment with someone living with serious illness. 5) Have a conversation with someone you know about Advance Care Planning. In the assignment you will focus on who would be the person that they would want to speak for them if they could not speak for themselves, often known as the MDPOA. When you successfully complete all 5 of these assignments and the other course work you will earn the Coursera Specialization Certificate in Palliative Care. More importantly you will be prepared to help others live well with serious and life-limiting disease....

I’m glad I had participated in Specialization in Palliative care, and I invite everyone that is a provider, caregiver, or have a family member with a severe limiting life illness to join, too!

All the instructors are specialists and highlighted knowledgeable in Palliative Care.

I loved the themes as Self-awareness, the importance to be present, the empathy aspect, The Suffering, and its complexity and amplitude.

The Specialization covered the Pain Management, Physical Symptoms, and Aspects Psychosocial and Spiritual of the Palliative Care, and are very well explained and complemented with videos and a lot of resources.

I want to thank the University of Colorado – Anschutz Medical Campus, Instructors, and Coursera for the opportunity to participate in this Specialization course about Palliative Care: It’s not Hospice Anymore.

I’m sure that my Specialization Certificate will make a high impact on my resume.

Reviewing others’s story of sufferings of the terminally ill helps to build up the very important clinical sense of empathy. Always try to care about others and think about how do we feel when such an event or happening occurred to us. This will make us a better person.
