Learning and Development

We offer a programme of education and training events covering a range of subjects related to palliative and end of life care.

Quality and Practice Development supports ACCORD’s vision of helping people to live as well as they can with their illness and make the most of the time they have left.

We do this by supporting our clinical colleagues with appropriate education and training, clinical audit and quality improvement projects. We also collaborate with local Care Homes, Health and Social Care Partners, Hospitals and other organisations through the delivery of projects such as Project ECHO® and communication skills training. 

Our department aims to help fellow professionals to develop their skills within palliative and end of life care. We also work with volunteers and carers to enhance their understanding of issues faced by people when they are ill or dying.   

We use innovative facilitation methods when we deliver learning programmes and always try to use peoples’ experiences as the basis for reflection and discussion. 

We work closely with other palliative care providers and stakeholders, influencing, developing, and contributing to palliative care educational programmes across professional disciplines. We also contribute to the evidence base for palliative care practice on a local and national basis. 

Education

The facilitators are all full of enthusiasm and show such passion for their job. They are inspiring!

Training Schedule will be updated in due course
