End-of-life care is an important subject. It gives more choice to patients on how and where they die, and ensures that they receive high quality care as they approach the end of their lives.
We are working with Health Education England on a new programme of work which aims to support and encourage NHS organisations to invest in the education and training of staff to deliver high quality, end-of-life care.
The report One chance to get it right
identifies that while organisations can change and improve processes, culture and training, support and engagement is needed from national organisations to promote the importance of this specialised care.
Our aim is to assist organisations in assessing and developing their end-of-life training and, in so doing, we will be developing:
Information and resources
- good practice from NHS organisations that continue to invest in end-of-life care training for staff
- top tips on how education and training can have wider benefits for your staff and organisation
- an overview of the role of local leads at Health Education England and other national organisations that support the end-of-life care agenda and training
- signposting to national stakeholders who provide funding for end-of-life care training.
For more information, view the pages in the end-of-life care web section which include:
The web pages will be regularly updated in the coming weeks so keep checking back for new information.
