Training

Only well-trained, competent and confident staff can bring professionalism, compassion and skill to the most difficult and intensely delicate physical and psychological caring

The Serious Illness Care National Education and Training Programme in the UK is a partnership led by The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust Merseyside, UK, with The Marie Cure Palliative Care Institute Liverpool, University of Liverpool, UK and Ariadne Labs Boston, USA.

 

Communication experts and experienced clinicians have worked with the Ariadne Labs team in the USA to develop an evidence based programme that supports clinicians to develop skills and confidence in using the conversation in clinical practice and to implement systems change within their organisation.
