Education and learning

Education and Resource Centre

We believe quality end-of-life care should be the norm.

Our Education Team is passionate about making this a reality by supporting the health and social care workforce.

The Education and Resource Centre at St Richard’s Hospice is a hub of excellence for professional development, evidence-based education, and training in palliative and end of life care.  

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, our regular education courses are postponed. However, the team continues to support the health and social care workforce to meet the challenges posed by the pandemic, and can support education requests.  

We are happy to discuss creating bespoke training in palliative and end of life care to meet the needs of your workforce.

For us, innovation is key and we use a range of techniques to meet the needs of our learners.

In the past we have worked with residential and nursing care homes, hospitals, primary care teams, schools and more. We have a strong partnership with the University of Worcester, and previously delivered programmes at Foundation Degree and Postgraduate Degree level.

Project ECHO®

We are a hub for Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes). We use video conferencing technology to share our knowledge and promote best practice care.

This platform has become our greatest asset in allowing us to continue to deliver bespoke courses and training for specific cohorts.

ECHO connects a multi-disciplinary team of experts with learners from health and social care settings at regular, video call sessions.

The project aims to reduce variations in processes of care, share best practice, and encourage case-based learning through guided practice on real-life cases.
