Full Series Educator Workshops


For health, social care, care home or hospice educators who want to overcome the #1 obstacle to staff support of patient-centered conversations and care planning. This proven framework and facilitation approach will give you practical tools and exercises that have proven to inspire and engage staff to support end of life conversations and care initiatives.

Scroll down for details.



For health, social care, care home or hospice educators wanting effective approaches to:

  • explore staff personal and professional beliefs and challenges around advance care conversations and planning
  • strengthen staff confidence and competence in talking with patients/clients about their wishes in a positive way
  • anticipate virtual or in-person delegate reactions before using the tools with actual delegate responses
    increase staff personal and professional commitment to supporting ACP/EOL initiatives
  • strengthen facilitation skills and incorporate this approach and resources to support your  local workshops, forms or initiatives.


  • Staff are required to act in patient’s best interest,  many are avoiding-or fear, starting these conversations themselves.
  • Overcoming this resistance is as much a key to effective patient-centered conversations, as the specifics of how to engage others in advance care or end of life conversations.
  • This workshop series has proven effective in doing both, with the added benefit of leaving staff with tools they can then use with patients and clients as a result.
