A practical way of resourcing well-being for health professionals working in palliative and end of life care.

About the event

This one-day workshop will offer you insights and practical tools that when put into practice, will help to interrupt a sense of the relentless busyness of work and life. Designed to be simple to access both on a regular everyday basis and eventually in the midst of challenge, micro mindfulness practices have been found to be effective in supporting health professionals working in the context of palliative and end of life care to support a sense of steadiness and balance.

Mindfulness seems to be everywhere, yet much of what is on offer suggests that it is all about achieving a calm clear mind, which in many contexts seems unlikely. Resilience is promoted as the way forward, yet as demands increase this also appears unachievable.

  • What will I learn?

    This study day will offer learning insights into better understanding the mechanics of stress and challenge in a palliative care and end of life care context – and you will have the chance of learning, practicing and taking away some simple practice tools to put in place.

More about St Christopher's education

St Christopher’s Education Centre and VAT charges

At St Christopher's, a registered charity, it is important for us to maximise any surpluses to reinvest in the objectives of the charity.

Unfortunately, the manner in which we undertake our training currently means we are not able to invest as much of our surplus as possible, therefore from the 1 December 2017, St Christopher’s Education Centre will charge VAT at the standard rate on our training courses, the reason for this change in pricing is twofold:

i) We want to be able to reinvest any surpluses made from training back into all of our charitable objectives rather than only Education

ii) We want to be able to reclaim the VAT on costs relating to developing and running the training courses
