When somebody approaches End of Life, their situation is always unique and very personal. There are many different approaches to assisting an individual with End of Life care, and this course gives you the skills and knowledge you need to identify the best one for the palliative circumstances. It will give you the knowledge and skills to cope with confidence at this sensitive time.
As a health and social care worker, you may be faced with supporting and caring for someone who is facing the End of Life. This is a sensitive time for your not just your patient, but for their loved ones, too.
You may be called to care for someone either in their last days or at an earlier stage of a progressing, terminal diagnosis. Either way, you will be relied upon to offer help with their day-to-day personal care and their emotional support.
Many terminally ill patients benefit from their relationship with carers at this difficult time who are able to offer them effective support and a lift to their quality of life. How do you decide which course of action to take when you are in such a role?
During the session, you'll cover:
Open discussions with staff regarding their experiences of End of Life Care
A breakdown of the types of care that is required of different staff groups
How to provide high quality End of Life Care services
The best way to communicate effectively with everybody involved in the unique situation, including the patient
How to recognise when a service user is nearing the End of Life
When and how to provide effective bereavement support where it’s needed.
This half-day course comprises an engaging mix of activities with fellow learners (maximum fifteen delegates). You’ll be asked to complete a simple multiple-choice assessment after you take the course. You will receive a certificate once you have passed the assessment.
