Previously St Richard’s has offered support for care providers with the attainment of competencies from the Gold Standards Framework. As an organisation we have reflected that this palliative and end of life education package is not suitable for many of the care providers across the county. As a result, we are currently in the process of building a new, bespoke programme that will provide not only evidence-based education and learning around palliative and end of life care but also guides users on the management and achievement of competencies.
Whilst the package is being compiled we will be providing individual training sessions on particular subjects that will be included in the wider package but can be accessed as one-off sessions through the events and courses page. These dates will be published in our revised Autumn prospectus.
During this challenging time, we are doing our utmost to continue caring for the patients and loved ones who need us most.
The way we work has been adapted, with many of our services delivered remotely – such as over the phone, or by video call. And we are working closely with other health care professionals in Worcestershire to share knowledge and expertise at this time.
