About Jersey Hospice Care’s Education Programme

As well as training our own staff, Jersey Hospice Care is also taking the lead in providing an education programme for all healthcare professionals island-wide.

This includes palliative care courses for Healthcare and Therapy Assistants, Registered Nurses and Allied Health Professionals, monthly masterclasses by Dr Carol Davis, Lead Consultant in Palliative Medicine at University Hospital Southampton, as well as various Bereavement workshops and Safeguarding courses.

These, together with workshops for Care Homes, Home Care providers, GPs, the Hospital and Hospice, will all support the Gold Standards Framework. This three year training programme was launched in Jersey in April 2015 and will empower patients and support front-line healthcare providers to deliver a consistently high quality of care for all islanders with any life limiting illnesses nearing the end of life.
