Education and Training at Macmillan Cancer Support

Life-limiting illness often disrupts a person’s ability to succeed and thrive in the areas of life which are most important to them. In recognising this, we recognise that life-limiting illness often disrupts a person’s agency. This enhanced level course explores the concept of agency and draws on recent research to develop an understanding of suffering as the significant disruption to agency. You will learn how to identify new causes and forms of suffering in palliative and end-of-life care and discover practical ways to enrich agency and alleviate suffering for the people you support. page (10) Understanding and enriching agency in palliative and end of life care course information - Macmillan (
