    Sergio Damaso Clinical Nurse Specialist, St Christopher's

    Sergio is a clinical nurse specialist in palliative care with several years of experience in surgical and medical oncology, haematology , intensive care, pain management, nursing management, tissue viability and stoma care.

    After starting his palliative care career at St Joseph’s Hospice, Sergio has joined STCH in 2017 and has been offering his specialist palliative care expertise between the inpatient unit and the community.

    One of his biggest career achievements was joining CARE as a visiting lecturer, supporting other colleagues to advance their own practice through education, focusing on developing KNOWHOW – our state of the art skills lab.

    He is always available to help others, truly lives the hospice values / mission statement and considers himself as approachable, knowledgeable enough and compassionate.

    His educational and research interests are around total pain, spiritual suffering, advanced nursing practice and informal carers training.

  • What will the course look like?

    Palliative wounds can cause serious physical, psychological and social pain. This workshop offers the opportunity to find out more about a holistic approach to care and management of palliative wounds.

    Using the state of the art skills lab, Knowhow, in the new St Christopher’s CARE, our expert nursing team will provide small groups of learners with a thorough introduction to the principles and practice of the complex and challenging issue of holistic wound management. We will in the coming months be looking to develop a more advanced workshop on this important area of care too.

    This two-hour skills workshop will include a theoretical presentation, case studies and time for a Q&A, as well as provide learners with everything they need to create an effective and holistic wound management care plan. Our expert tutors will also support you with ways of identifying common symptoms and the practicalities of wound management.

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
