Useful information

Shakun Banfield

Rehabilitation in palliative care has been well established as a way of supporting people to live well until they die. But we know that it can be so much more than a visit from a physio or OT.

Rehabilitative palliative care encourages us to think about how each interaction we have with someone can enhance their quality of life.

In this workshop we will explore the principles of rehabilitation in a wider context and how we can use them to enhance our practice.

We will explore topics such as goal setting, movement, enablement and self-management.

What will I learn?

In this workshop we will look at practical ways in which you can support someone to be the best that they can be. We will explore the importance of language in our interactions and there will be some role play.

Also we’ll look at the importance of asking ‘What matters to you?’ and how we can use that to influence the care/support that we provide.

Participants will receive a certificate of attendance.

Who is it for?

This workshop is appropriate for all Nurses, Nursing Associates, Healthcare Assistants, Care Home Managers, Pharmacists and other allied health professionals looking to learn more about rehabilitative palliative care.
