End of Life Care

The Quality Innovation team are working with Local Hospices and the National Gold Standards Framework Centre to provide fully funded Train the Trainer End of Life Care course for Domiciliary Care Agencies.

This nationally acclaimed programme was awarded a Highly Commended at the Patient Safety Awards 2020 in the End of Life Care Category. Read the judges comments here.

The course uses well developed Gold Standards Framework (GSF) principles to focus on organisational and systems change. It enhances the understanding, skills and confidence of Domiciliary Care workers. The programme provides staff with greater confidence and competence, enabling them to work more closely with primary care teams and others.

The course will give your trainers the knowledge and skills to train your staff in 'care in the final years of life' to help them deliver the best possible care for all people approaching the end of life at home. The programme gives domiciliary carers the knowledge, skills, support and confidence to deliver a 'gold standard' of care. The programme is fully resourced, with intrinsic evaluations, building on GSF in other settings, to improve cross boundary care.

More details of dates in your area and how to book will be released shortly and all sessions will be publicised on the Events page of the Hub.
