A significant amount of Prospect Hospice’s income is raised through our charity shops. The success of our retail operation depends on the generous support of the local community (donating and buying goods), and the commitment of our managers and volunteers. Find out more here.
The Prospect Hospice Education Team has designed a creative, innovative and unique training programme to support the development of unregistered staff in care homes and build on the partnerships currently in place in our surrounding area.
The certificate brings with it a unique opportunity to engage in high quality training informed by the expertise that remains synonymous with the care provided by Prospect Hospice.
The certificate requires you to complete five theory-based training modules delivered at Prospect Hospice. These modules each consist of a one day session and are held every two months, alongside demonstrating your learning through the development of a portfolio.
Understanding end-of-life care
Communication during end-of-life care
Assessment and care planning in end-of-life care
Person-centred approaches to end-of-life care
Care during the final hours of life and bereavement care
Once all modules have been completed and a portfolio of evidence submitted, work is verified and if all assessments are passed, the Level 3 certificate in Principles of End-of-Life care is awarded.
“Staff confidence has increased: they ask questions, have their own ideas, suggest changes and find their own answers.”
“Staff have shared their knowledge with colleagues and have applied their learning to all types of care as well as end-of-life.”
Cost: £400 per person
