Education Programme

Our Education Department is an important part of the hospice, offering education to those involved in care services such as palliative care and end of life care, either here at the hospice or in hospital, within the community or perhaps the patient’s own home.


An introduction to the management of syringe drivers

This half day session provides an opportunity for registered general nurses and doctors to consider the appropriate use of a syringe driver (McKinley) in palliative care.  There will be a focus on the implications for its use, advantages and possible disadvantages, drug compatibility and the practicalities of setting the syringe driver up as well as monitoring the effect of its use.

A certificate of attendance, not competence, will be issued

Date:     Wednesday 30 September 2020

Time:     1.30pm – 4.30pm

Venue:   Day Hospice, St Barnabas House

Cost:      £40 per delegate




We will shortly be launching our 2020/21 Education Programme, which aims to promote the best possible care for our patients and support for their family and friends.

The programme is put together following discussion with patients, carers and professionals, to ensure that our teaching sessions match the needs of those receiving and those giving the care.

We will not be publishing a brochure this year, if you require any additional information about any of the courses, please contact the Education team, contact details are available in the ‘more details’ section of this page. When you are ready to book simply complete our booking form.
