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.
