Education & Training

"We think our job is to ensure health and survival. But really it is larger than that. It is to enable well-being. And well-being is about the reasons one wishes to be alive..."  Atul Gawande

As experts in our field, we are passionate about sharing our specialist knowledge and working with our partners to keep learning and sharing good practice in palliative and end-of-life care across the region.

We run courses for healthcare professionals to learn and share best practice. We also offer placements so that healthcare professionals and students can gain a more thorough understanding of the work we do.

Our courses and workshops are run by our education team with sessions provided by our experienced multi-professional hospice clinicians. The teaching team are experienced in hospice, community and acute settings which ensures that theory is linked to current practice in all settings.

We also design and provide bespoke education sessions that provide tailored experience for your organisation.
