Working With Others - Education resources


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


St Clare Hospice provides a number of educational activities designed to meet the needs of our colleagues in the NHS, Nursing Homes, Community Teams and acute care settings. In addition to Hospice-based education, staff can provide courses and study days at the care providers' own premises.
