We are committed to providing an effective learning environment and promoting the education of our own staff and other professionals through formal and informal teaching sessions, study days and work shadowing.
We remain committed to ensuring that education is available to all staff, and that this education is interesting, relevant and most importantly ensures we equip staff to provide an excellent standard of palliative care to the people of Bolton.
We work collaboratively with the Bolton NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Bolton in seeking to maintain education as a priority, monitor the palliative care education needs of local health and social care professionals, and direct the delivery of palliative care locally in line with local and national priorities.
Who is the education for?
Our programmes and courses are designed to meet the needs of a variety of practitioners, working in different care settings and from different backgrounds. A select number of our courses are also to the wider public for anyone who has an interest in end of life and palliative care or bereavement. Please refer to our latest Education Prospectus for details of our courses and who they may be suitable for.
What do we provide?
We aim to be responsive to the needs of the healthcare workers of Bolton. Our education programmes draw on the expertise of many members of the palliative care team here and in the wider community, and include updates on symptom management, bereavement, communication skills, spirituality and disease management.
