Training and Education
The End of Life Care Strategy published by the Department of Health recognised that care for dying people was rather fragmented, with some patients receiving excellent care and others not having access to such high quality. This needs to change so that for all GPs and Healthcare professionals are trained to give the optimum care that patients deserve at the end of life ensuring equity for all.
As a Centre for Excellence with many highly trained and specialised staff, it is part of our remit to improve Palliative Care in our community. One of the ways we do this is through the provision of training programmes.
Social and Therapeutic Horticulture (STH) for Palliative Care Training Day
Hospice UK have recently recognised the importance of Social and Therapeutic Horticulture (STH) for palliative care by awarding Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care a generous grant from St James’s Place Foundation.
Lisi Pilgrem, Occupational Therapist at Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care is developing and expanding STH through the therapeutic use of gardens, gardening and nature based interventions, to support people in the last year of life to live well.
If you are interested in setting up STH where you work, you are welcome to attend this training day, funded by St James’s Place Foundation.
