About the event

  • What is Virtual Learning?

    We now offer bite sized education so we can continue to meet your education needs. These short sessions will focus on particular end of life care topics or aspects and will give you the opportunity to refresh or expand your knowledge. During these unprecedented times you may find many of these topics particularly useful as you undoubtably will be supporting many patients, families and friends during a very difficult time in their lives.

    Virtual learning is a style of learning designed to recreate your classroom experience online. St Christopher’s virtual learning environment offers mixed methodologies to learning online, from full interactions, engaging bite-size presentations, quizzes and resources. Each of our courses is designed and led by leading experts in end of life care, helping to bring flexibility and variety to your virtual learning experience.

  • What will I learn?

    • Simple tools for your wellbeing, resilience and self-care
    • How to understand emotional contagion
    • How to look after your mental health
    • Coping strategies and remaining hopeful
    • How to ask for what you need
  • Who is it for?

    This session is primarily aimed at:

    • Nurses in primary, community and secondary care
    • Nurses in voluntary services
    • Allied Health Professionals
    • Health Care Assistants
    • Doctors
    • Care homes and care home managers

    This was originally broadcast as a weekly series for staff at St Christopher’s Hospice.

Her clients appreciate her approach which is warm, challenging and rooted in positive psychology.

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
