Bottom Line: Palliative care for patients with advanced and progressive diseases has recently become an integrated and compulsory part of undergraduate training in Germany.Up until now, undergraduate teaching in this cross-disciplinary medical field varied and therefore problems during the implementation process with regard to formal aspects and teaching content are to be expected.This contribution summarizes the new legislative framework for palliative care as an independent specialty in undergraduate medical training and describes format, content and problems of the current implementation process at the University Medical School Göttingen, in order to provide advice and support for other faculties.

ABSTRACT
Palliative care for patients with advanced and progressive diseases has recently become an integrated and compulsory part of undergraduate training in Germany. Up until now, undergraduate teaching in this cross-disciplinary medical field varied and therefore problems during the implementation process with regard to formal aspects and teaching content are to be expected. This contribution summarizes the new legislative framework for palliative care as an independent specialty in undergraduate medical training and describes format, content and problems of the current implementation process at the University Medical School Göttingen, in order to provide advice and support for other faculties.

T4: Interdisciplinary Course Aspect “Giving Bad News"

Mentions: Currently, core palliative medical content is taught at all potential linkage points relevant to the teaching of palliative medicine listed in Table 3 (Tab. 3), especially within module 3.3 “Basics of Tumour Illnesses“ (3rd clinical semester) and in the follow-on module 6.3 (6th clinical semester). To date, teaching staff of the Palliative Medicine Department handle one main lecture (1 x 2 THs) and one seminar (approx. 20 students, 10 x 1 TH, with interdisciplinary staff recruited from the areas of oncology and palliative medicine) for all students of a year within module 3.3. Teaching by the patient’s bedside (TBPB) in groups of three on the palliative ward is possible for approx. 1/6 of all students of a year (10 x 3 THs). In module 6.3 the Palliative Medicine Department independently runs a pharmacologically oriented seminar (“Drug Therapy in Palliative Medicine", 10 x 2 THs) and in conjunction with Haematology/Oncology, General Practice, Psychosomatic Medicine/Psychotherapy runs the interactive course on “Giving Bad News” (2 x 2 THs, cf Table 4 (Tab. 4)). Both teaching modules listed in 3.3 and 6.3 (9 THs) to date form the primary content run by the Palliative Medicine Department and currently represent the only aspect relevant to obtaining the certificate/taking the exam in Q13.
