Palliative Care MOOC project videos have been created as educational resources that capture simulations of medical maneuvers, situational medical interventions, accompanied by specific medical communications, faithful to the elaborated palliative procedures.

By doing this it is expected that it will teach not only state of the art medical content and skills in various languages but also place the content in a variety of medical situations in which doctors and nurses communicate with patients or in which interdisciplinary team practitioners communicate among themselves in the national language or in a foreign language on palliative medical topics, specific to the elaborated procedures.
