Education and Training

The Hospice aims to provide a comprehensive palliative care education programme for staff working in a wide variety of healthcare settings.  

Our programme of events supports the recommendations in the End of Life Care Strategy (Department of Health, 2008), to help improve palliative care in hospitals, hospices, care homes, and the community. 

Our Education Team has many years of experience working in healthcare and specifically in delivering specialist palliative care. Teaching is also provided by members of the Hospice's multi-discipline team, bringing a wealth of experience and real life scenarios to enhance learners’ understanding of subjects.

Our courses and study days include:

  • Introduction to End of Life Care for registered nurses and allied health care professionals
  • Introduction to dementia and palliative care
  • Quality End of Life Care for all

I cannot thank you enough for the outstanding care given to me, my family and of course my husband before he died. You are all angels.
