The Education Department at Dorothy House helps health care professionals not only to understand more about the work we do here, but also to gain a range of skills needed for effective end of life care.
We are specialists in educating, training and developing staff in a range of health and social care settings and have expertise in palliative care, bereavement, team working and communication skills.
Education provision includes programmes aimed at both a local and national audience, and targeted at different levels. The Education Department offers a range of education and training opportunities, through:
An annual programme of workshops and conferences
Outreach programmes tailored to meet needs and taught in the workplace
Training and development of our own staff and volunteers
GP Education and Support

We also offer open afternoons for health and social care staff who would simply like to find out more about what we do.
The training we provide is focused around the following areas:
End of Life Care / Palliative Care
Communication Skills needed in End of Life care situations
Syringe Driver Management
Advance Care Planning
In addition to our scheduled programme of events, we can also design courses specifically to meet your needs and at your location.
