How we help Support for professionals Professional training We provide training and education on end of life care to health and social care professionals in our area. This includes short courses, placement-based programmes and bespoke sessions for specific professional groups. We train doctors, nurses, care assistants, nursing home staff, social workers, therapists, both pre- and post-qualification. Some of the issues we cover include: training on communication skills, engaging in difficult conversations with patients who have a life-limiting illness; managing symptoms and medication at the end of life; practical experience of supporting patients and their families at the end of lives; advanced care planning for people with dementia.
