The End of Life Care (EoLC) Strategy aims to improve the availability and access to the highest quality care and support for adults approaching the end of their life.
This End of Life Care Strategy training course is a valuable training resource for people working in the health and social care sectors who are involved in providing end of life care so that people in their care receive the highest quality of care and support from well informed and competent care workers and volunteers.
The course will enhance the skills and understanding of any person delivering end of life care as recommended by the Department of Health National End of Life Strategy so that they can be fully confident of their abilities when delivering challenging but rewarding end of life care to the people they care for.
Many health and social care workers do not have enough training in recognising when a person in their care may be approaching the end of their life and how to communicate with them and care for them. It is important that care workers and volunteers involved in delivering end of life care are able to communicate effectively and with compassion and respect. Completing this training course will help people implementing the guidance and recommendations provided by the End of Life Care Strategy so that communication needs are met.
As a care worker who isn’t an end of life care specialists may on occasion find themselves supporting an individual who is in the final stages of their life. It’s important that they are prepared and able to make a positive contribution when it is needed and this end of life training course is the ideal solution for providing them with the necessary basic End of Life Strategy skills.
We hear all too often about failings within the care industry where vulnerable people are denied the support they deserve and so desperately need - support which is provided with respect, compassion and sensitivity.
This e-learning training course underlines the importance of providing person-centred care for individuals nearing the end of their lives in ways that protect and promote dignity. It also explores how good communication throughout the support network can contribute to effective care planning and delivery.
