Training for staff members from BH UK Network & Bosnian Centre Derby.

This training was originally designed by St. Christopher’s to effectively share best practice and contribute to the development of the general health and social care staff from any care setting. In partnership with Hospice UK and NHS Improving Quality (NHS IQ), QUELCA has been rolled out to teams of acute nurses from over 20 acute hospitals across England through “Transforming end of life care in acute hospitals. It has since been delivered to teams of community nurses, acute interdisciplinary teams, healthcare teams from prisons, paramedics, senior nurses from larger care home and a team of trainee older age psychiatrists.

Expected Outcomes of this training are:
-increased knowledge of the principles of palliative care
-increased confidence in the knowledge of the management of specific symptoms or issues relevant or related to their own practice
-increased confidence in own ability to initiate conversations related to end of life issues with colleagues, patients & relatives
-evidence in change in own practice that has improved patient experience
-evidence of implantation of changes in practice across teams and/ or organisation which have improved patient experience.
