Last Phase of life Care Home Training for Nursing and Care Homes in Brent and Harrow

There was a large interest from staff working in Brent and Harrow Nursing and Care Homes to attend end of life care training. A programme was developed at St Luke’s Hospice to provide champion training to staff from local nursing and care homes. The programme was supported by HENWL Challenges in End of Life Care Project.

In 2016 the programme was delivered, which consisted of four study days, over a four month period. All training was delivered at St Luke’s Hospice training room and refreshments, including lunch, were provided throughout the day. The programme included a variety of topics, including Advanced Care Planning, What is a Good Death, Holistic Assessment, Disease Trajectories and Communication in End of Life Care etc.

In the first half of 2016 over 40 staff members from local nursing and care homes attended the training and the programme will be repeated in autumn 2016. When further details of the dates of the next training are confirmed it will be provided here.
