For Professionals
(Health, Hospice, Social Care, Care Home, Community Staff)
According to the National End of Life Care Strategy and a recent Northwest Scoping of End of Life training for health and social care staff, all staff must become more comfortable with their role in advance care conversations and end of life care if improving care of the dying is to be achieved.

As part of strategic interventions, to date more than 200 staff representing multiple services (see below) have attended our 1 day "Simple Tools to Start the Conversation" sessions focusing on supporting staff to overcome the fear of talking about death and dying in order to improve patient care and provides tools to assist them to begin to apply what they learn personally and with those in their care as a result. Sessions have been commissioned by GMCCN, NHS Manchester, NHS Salford, NHS Trafford, Pennine Care Foundation Trust, MacMillan and others.

Multi-service staff attend each session, providing greater awareness and wisdom shared, while supporting end of life, palliative care, and care pathway (LCP, GSF, PPC) interventions and projects.
