A life threatening illness affects the body, mind, spirit, social well-being, the family of the patient and their carers. Hospice education for health and social care professionals strives to improve skills, knowledge and attitudes in all these areas.

St Clare Hospice contributes to the field of palliative care education locally, nationally and internationally. We will support and work with you so that, together, we can ensure the right patients are referred to St Clare at the right time.

We provide a number of educational activities designed to meet the needs of our health and social care colleagues in the NHS, nursing homes, community teams and acute care settings.

In addition to the Hospice-based educational programme, we can come to you either to provide informal support or to run a specific course or study day. Or you can come and spend time with us.

One of the most effective ways of learning is hands-on experience. We have strong links with universities, nursing and medical training programmes and offer placements to doctors and student nurses, occupational therapists and physiotherapists. The knowledge and understanding of hospice care gained means, together, we can offer a more comprehensive service to help with the complex problems patients may present.

“My four months at St Clare transformed my view of what hospice care is like. You see people who have given up on life and they come to St Clare, receive help from the multi-disciplinary team, have their symptoms controlled and become more confident… My experience has made me a better doctor…And to be honest, I think it’s made me a better person as well.”
Dr Dhara Shah
