Palliative Care Education
NHS Lanarkshire normally runs a series of lunchtime education sessions, mainly for healthcare professionals. This year’s programme is at an early stage of planning, but please contact Helen.Alexander@lanarkshire.scot.nhs.uk if you have any suggestions for topics we should include.
Lanarkshire GPs are welcome to participate in NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde’s evening education programme. For details, please contact Ann McIntosh on firstname.lastname@example.org
On-line palliative care training
NHS Education for Scotland has created a palliative care portal to access a variety of educational resources. It aims to develop knowledge and understanding of the principles of palliative and end of life care and advance care planning.
One of the resources included on this portal is the Department of Health e-End of Life Care for All (e-ELCA) programme. Although developed in England, anyone in Scotland can request access to these modules and assess their learning progress. The home page provides details of how to apply for access.
