Learner Outcomes

iEPEC-O is an online course adapted from Education in Palliative and End-of-Life Care for Oncology (EPEC™-O),  a well-known workshop based comprehensive curriculum originally developed by the U.S. National Cancer Institute in collaboration with the American society for Clinical Oncology and the EPEC  Project team. In 2009, it was tailored to the Canadian context by the EPEC™-O Canada team whose work was made possible through financial contribution from Health Canada through the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer. The vision of the iEPEC-O on-line course is to support all health care providers who care for people with cancer and other serious illnesses, and help in the delivery of high quality palliative and end-of-life-care across Canada. The course builds on the strength of the existing workshop based curriculum and incorporates recommendations from “The Way Forward” report on person centred approaches.
