End of Life Care Workshops for Support Workers

We are running a series of 7 Workshops for Health and Social Care Support Workers on a range of End of Life Care topics.

They provide a great opportunity for new and existing staff to gain knowledge in End of Life Care.

These workshops can be used to inform your knowledge when working towards units in QCF or the Care Certificate.

Each Workshop is just £20 per person and will be held at St Peters Hospice Charlton Road, Brentry BS10 6NL starting at 1pm and finishing at 4pm.
