Care home health care workers are first Passport graduates

We were thrilled to welcome staff from local care homes to celebrate their completion of our unique end-of-life care passport training programme yesterday evening.

Staff from Bassett House, Lansdowne Hill and Princess Lodge, who were part of our pilot group for the acclaimed new training programme, were presented with certificates and their stamped and validated passport – a document that demonstrates a track record of training in the field of end-of-life care, led by Prospect Hospice professionals.

“We had a brilliant evening, celebrating the success of the healthcare workers from the three care homes, and marking their achievement as the pilot group for the new programme” says Prospect Hospice education manager Jill Beckhelling. “I feel privileged to have successfully taken this group through the programme and I have been impressed throughout by their enthusiasm to develop their learning in the provision of end-of-life care. Health care workers in care homes will play a key part in the delivery of end-of-life care locally in the years ahead, and this group are the very first group in our community to have been trained by Prospect Hospice in readiness for this.”

Following the successful completion of the pilot group, two new groups have begun the programme and there will be two further groups commencing this spring, significantly increasing the number of local care home staff with Prospect Hospice end-of-life care training in our area.
