Death, dying and planning for the last years of life can be one of the most challenging topics to discuss for anyone working within health and social care. With the right knowledge and skills it can become one of the most rewarding.


By the end of the workshop you will be able to:

• Explain what planning for the last years of life is and why we need to do it;
• Discuss what makes it difficult to talk with service users about death and dying and end of life care;
• Identify strategies for starting conversations about dying and planning for the end of life with those we support;
• Discuss how someone can record their end of life wishes in an advance care plan and explain your role in the advance care planning process.


“A very good workshop even though a difficult topic to discuss. I now feel more confident to discuss with service users and complete my own plans”

All of the sessions worked well together and were very useful. Very well blended with presentations and group work so kept momentum of level of interest”

100% of all participants, who have attended our courses, said they would recommend it to others.

Cost: £65 per person
