Training and Education

Education is the key in understanding the needs of people who are living with a life-limiting or terminal illness, their family and carers.

Our training and education focuses on the holistic needs of patients and values their carer in the process. We value education as an essential part of developing caring and compassionate staff, allowing talent to flourish and to providing excellence in care.

We work in partnership, to design and deliver a range of courses which reflect contemporary palliative care. As experienced educators we offer a safe environment to encourage practitioners to develop confidence and competence in a range of topics. Our courses offered currently include:

Dying to Communicate a two day communication skills course

Advance Care Planning a study day to support patient choice in end of life.

Our education programmes are designed to meet the needs of registered healthcare professionals as well as experienced social care workers and professionals working in end of life care. For more details and registration of interest please click on the appropriate course.
