Training and development at Prospect Hospice

Prospect Hospice is the leading provider of education and training for end-of-life care in Swindon and north Wiltshire. Working closely with you, our colleagues within partner organisations, we want to ensure that the very best care is available to everyone facing the end of life. This is why we provide education and development opportunities, all of which aim to encourage learning and build confidence in end-of-life care and support.

Our team of skilled clinicians are at the heart of our education programme and work alongside our education team. They are passionate about sharing their skills and experience, ensuring all activities are delivered with integrity and that they are relevant to local need too.

What have our learners said?

"Information was linked to the workplace and allowed me to understand where I can improve my end-of-life care practices, as well as looking at how I can improve my professional development opportunities".

"I learnt how to support and manage the breathless patient, to recognise the signs and symptoms and techniques to alleviate breathlessness".

"I learnt to apply my MCA/DOLS knowledge and information to my clinical practice, share knowledge and information with colleagues and within the community setting".
