Providing therapies for clients with cancer or other life limiting conditions
This accredited online course Providing 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.
