Yes

 

If yes, how many hours are timetabled?

Approx 50

Is palliative care examined in Finals exams or at other points in the course?

Yes – currently, although the clinical OSCE is to move to the end of year 4 for the next academic year.  Students will not have had palliative care teaching and thus will not be able to examined within an OSCE.  We have to come up with a valid and reliable alternative.
