3 Day Programme in End of Life Care

We offer two courses aimed at increasing skills and knowledge in relation to End of Life Care.

These courses entail three full days of study and take place at St Peter's Hospice, Brentry.

The course offered at Assistant Level (open to HCAs, Nursing Auxiliaries and Senior Carers) is based on Communication Skills, Understanding Symptoms, Maintaining Comfort and Wellbeing and Best Practice in End of Life Care.

The course offered at Practitioner Level (open to RNs) is specific to Sympton Management at End of Life, including Assessment and Care Planning.

Both courses are informed by the Common Core Competencies for End of Life Care (Skills for Health, Skills for Care) and support the National End of Life Care Strategy.
