Education and training

The Hospice offers a comprehensive palliative care education and training programme for people working in a wide variety of healthcare settings.

Our programme 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 and Training team has many years’ experience of working in healthcare and specifically in delivering specialist palliative care. Our trainers include Hospice staff working with people at home, in hospital, in care homes, and the Hospice. These trainers bring a wealth of experience and can use real life scenarios to enhance learners’ understanding.
