Rehabilitative Palliative Care

Rehabilitative Palliative Care can make a big difference in peoples lives, upholding them as an individual and supporting them to be the best that they can be. Sometimes we know that creating change, implementing something new can be challenging and you can benefit from support along the way. This Community of Practice will support you using an ‘Action Learning’ model to create challenge, action planning and learning.

Comments from previous attendees this year:

Safe space to share ideas and benefit from others’ experience.”

I have grown in confidence over the past year and have found the network of the group really helpful.”

This training has supported developing action plans for service development which has been invaluable.”

The chance to hear what other places are doing and develop ideas from there – it has been good to know that there are resources out there that can be developed for us to use rather than starting from scratch.”

It has given me confidence to be able to make decisions and changes in my role at our hospice.  Knowing that people in similar roles are having similar experiences was reassuring.

When we are excited about change and want to implement something new it is important to take people with us and create lasting change. In these sessions we will support each other to see how the model can be used in your place of work. We will explore the challenges and opportunities that there are available to you and share expertise and experience within the group.

These sessions will not only give you a variety of support to take actions where you may be struggling but also an opportunity to network with other like minded professionals across the country and potentially beyond.

The Community will be interactive and formed of 6-8 people and we will meet every 3-4 weeks. This group will be based on some of the principles of Action Learning sets. In the first session we will reflect on how the new Rehabilitative Palliative Care model fits in the context of our work. We will think about the role that we all have to play as leaders, whatever level we might be in an organisation. We’ll start to think about how these might link to see what changes we would like to make where we work to implement this way of thinking.

You will be encouraged to create an overall goal and vision for the programme and consider the steps that you will need to take to implement it. The group will discuss these and provide support and encouragement along the way. We will then have opportunities, over the proceeding months, to bring issues that you are having to the group.

The aim is to create a continuous process of learning and reflection, supported by members with an intention of moving things forward. Though the group each participant with gather knowledge and have time for active reflection before making a plan. This will be followed up on subsequent sessions so we can all gain from each other’s learning.

This group is open to anyone who has a passion for the principles of rehabilitative palliative care and would like to make changes to their individual or organisational practice to more encompass these principles.
