The Lantern Model of Nursing

The Lantern Model of Nursing

November webinar announced for our new model of nursing dedicated to palliative and end of life care

10 October 2021


Following the great success of our Lantern Model webinar series in early 2021, we are delighted to be hosting an additional episode this November, in which viewers will also gain a sneak-peek into plans for our brand-new Lantern Model teaching programme launching in Spring 2022.

The Lantern Model articulates the unique, vital and skilled role of nurses caring for people who are dying or bereaved and, by highlighting their huge contribution, makes the case for increased investment in their recruitment, development and retention.

Speaking broadly, The Lantern Model is based on seven key components:

  • Outcomes
  • Context of Care
  • Processes of Nursing Care
  • Support by the wider Multi-Disciplinary Team
  • Personal prerequisites
  • Organisational conditions and
  • Key tenets that shape and guide the care provided.

We believe the Lantern Model offers a framework for nurses and their organisations to build and mould their care delivery  and nursing practice, so patients and families continue to receive the best possible care at the end of life.

We believe the Lantern Model should be seen as a framework on which to build.

After hearing from a number of experts in their field earlier this year, we are thrilled to be joined by leading nurses Professor Philip Larkin from the University of Lausanne, and Maggie Bissett, Nurse Consultant and St Christopher’s lead for Palliative Discovery, who will be speaking about the most fundamental and skilled of nursing actions – relational care and authentic connection.

Both bring with them extensive experience of palliative and end of life care, and will focus the webinar on thoughtful reflection regarding the challenges and opportunities facing this aspect of nursing, including the importance of relationships established by the nurse with both their colleagues and those in their care. And how such relational work has an impact on patient outcomes .

We welcome their insights and expertise, and invite you to join us in thinking with them about ways in which, together, we can progress practice and the profession of palliative nursing moving forward.

Join the Lantern Model Programme

We are delighted to announce a brand new one-year membership programme, starting in April 2022, which will weave together inspiration, learning and connections amongst all nurses interested in making a real difference to people facing the end of life.
