This course was exhaustive. There wasn't much that wasn't discussed or explored and it was all relevant. The actress who is performing the Sarah character is very effective in illustrating everything we are learning in a human way. The role playing in general, is a great way to get students out of textbook thinking and greatly humanizes these learning exercises.

I love the practical part of the learning. The use of cases makes it easy to comprehend how to actually work with the patients

I wish it was more oriented to practical tips and guidelines to alleviate suffering in patients (e.g. medication, physical therapy, care of dyspneic patients, management of pain), but the whole course was mostly focused on patient-provider communication. It is important, but only one part of palliative care. I am writing this from a doctor's perspective. I did not learn anything new, to be honest, and I paid a lot of money. I would not recommend the same course for anyone, in case you don't make some changes.

My gosh! The peer review is taking forever and I have to grade 3 people for every course. That will take forever. Make it more measurable and don't put you can finish as fast as you could. Because it is not real. even though we finish early, we have to wait forever. You are doing the peer review so people would get stuck and pay a monthly subscription or encourage other people to join your course. You guys just want to suck money out of people. Horrible! Horrendous!
