The hospice hosts and enables seminars to give healthcare professionals the confidence and knowledge to deal with palliative care issues in their job.
Topics for future seminars include:
Management of breakthrough pain
We also invest in educating and training tomorrow’s healthcare professionals in palliative care. We host intensive one-day introductions to palliative care for pre-registration medical students from the Leeds School of Medicine six times a year. Feedback from this well- evaluated programme shows we are helping to demystify hospice care.
All our staff are trained in-house and externally in a way that links clearly to the competencies required for their role.
Where possible our training is co-ordinated with other palliative care providers, such as Macmillan Cancer Care and our neighbouring hospices, to share knowledge and ensure resources are effectively used.
