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.
This study afternoon will provide an opportunity to explore what the term ‘spirituality’ means and how the care providers might help to support a person’s spiritual needs at the end of life.
Time will also be given to consider how the care providers might respond to some potentially sensitive comments or questions when they arise in everyday practice.

We have just launched 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, but we have produced a flyer detailing all of our External courses for 2020-21. 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.
