End of life care is for people who are nearing the end of life. The goal is to help you and everyone affected by your diagnosis to achieve the best quality of life.
End of life care aims to treat or manage pain and other physical symptoms. It will also help with any psychological, social or spiritual effects. Treatment will involve medicines, therapies, and any other support that specialist teams believe will help their patients.
As this is such a sensitive time for patients and families it is important for carers to be trained correctly in order to help the best they can.
- Staff that have been trained correctly will be confident and competent in delivering end-of-life care that will ensure that the needs of patients and those closest to them are met well.
- Supporting staff with training and education can help to sustain their health and well being at work and support them whilst providing care in difficult and emotionally demanding settings.
- Training can be linked to business needs, for example, improving quality of care, ward productivity and efficiency.
- You can maximize staff potential by providing them with skills that can be transferable to all care settings.
