Five day multi-disciplinary programme
About the event
This five day multi-disciplinary programme gives palliative care health and social care professionals from anywhere in the world, who are wishing to evaluate and develop their services, the opportunity to observe services provided by St Christopher’s. In addition, delegates will be encouraged to reflect on wider contemporary issues and the implications for developing palliative care practice within their own setting/culture.
This programme offers structured facilitation so that each person can leave here with a clear understanding of what is relevant to their own specific care setting and a plan for implementation of their learning into practice. The programme combines practice observation facilitated by senior hospice clinicians with classroom presentations, group discussions and individual action planning. It also offers the opportunity to participate in an ongoing online learning community.
The aim is for programme participants to leave empowered and equipped to address some of the challenges of delivering holistic palliative and end of life care in the setting and communities in which they work.
