Education and training allows us to develop, review and introduce the best practice into the care we provide to the people we care for.

The aim of these programmes is to provide you with the knowledge and skills that will provide the evidence that the professional and regulatory standards by which you are governed are being met.

The education programmes provided will allow you to develop and reflect on your practice and the practice of others. Your feedback will help us develop future programmes that meet the ever changing needs of the people we care for.

The Education and Resource Centre provides palliative and end of life care education and training programmes designed to meet current and evolving service delivery models.
Our programmes are well evaluated and we provide high quality education and training for those whose interest is in delivering the best possible care to those involved in palliative and end of life care. Learners come from a wide range of services including residential and nursing care homes, hospitals, primary care teams, schools, colleges and domiciliary care teams. We aim to provide a learning experience that meets your learning needs and can be tailored to support the delivery of national standards.

We have established a strong partnership with the University of Worcester and we deliver accredited specialist education programmes at Foundation degree and post-graduate degree level.
We regard innovation as key to making learning a dynamic and enjoyable experience and we use a range of flexible learning approaches to meet the needs of learners.

Please contact us for further information and/or guidance in choosing a learning programme which best suits the needs of you or your department and the people you care for. If there is education and training that you think we should be providing then please let us know and we will look at how this can be best delivered.

We look forward to welcoming you to one of our programmes soon.
