Ambitions into Action – shaping End of Life Care through education and training
A two day course for registered multi-disciplinary staff; GPs, AHPs and nurses from community, hospital and care home setting. The programme covers all aspects of EoLC including latest EoLC policies, communication and symptom control.
“One chance to Get it Right” (2014) and “Ambitions for Palliative and End of Life Care: National frameworks for Local action 2015-2020” (2015) were welcome and timely publications. These have encouraged us to press on with our work of the past 5 years to continue to offer programmes that prepare staff to be competent, confident and compassionate as they deliver care with empathy, skills and expertise.
A bespoke training programme of two days duration, the course is ideal for registered multi-disciplinary staff: community nurses and practitioners (OTs, PTs), SWAST, care home registered nurses.
