In the daily activities, very often, the terms "palliative care" and "palliative medicine" are interchangeable. The term "palliative medicine" is considered as related to a medicine specialization, while the term "palliative care" is related to a multiprofessional and multidimensional dimension of the taking care of the person and of his/her family during the last period of life. When the patient lives an unfavourable prognosis, a "total suffering and pain" situation is evident: beyond the physical problems, the psychological and spiritual aspects are evident, together with social and interpersonal relationship problems and economics complications. Taking care of the patient with unfavourable prognosis means to face all questions related to pain and suffering of the patients, so applying the philosophy of palliative care.

A new European Project named "Palliative Care MOOC" coordinated by University of Medicine and Pharmacy (Iasi, Romania) and funded by Erasmus+ Program has started on October 1st 2014 and will finish in 2017.

The general aim is to create open digital educational resources in the field of palliative medicine based on a developing innovative guideline connected to standardized fundamental medical manoeuvres, clinical language and communication skills in order to support the learning/teaching processes of the medical lecturers, of the language teachers who teach medical students, of medical students, and of the lay people involved in health situations.

The results of this European project will create a new training course developed at European level with different partners coming from four countries. Here is the list of the participants:

- University of Brasov (RO)
