Provide therapies for clients with cancer or other life limiting conditions (QCF)
This accredited course Provide Therapies for Clients with Cancer & Other Life Limiting Conditions (Oncology) qualification will prepare you to work within a healthcare setting providing complementary therapies for clients who are suffering life limiting conditions or who are critically frail. Complementary therapies are widely available to people with cancer and increasingly to patients with a range of long term medical and life limiting conditions. These therapies are delivered alongside orthodox treatments, often within the healthcare setting, with the aim of providing psychological and emotional support through the relief of symptoms. This qualification is designed to give you the essential knowledge for customer care and consultation skills to assist you to provide your own therapeutic skills within a clinical setting.
