Talking about dying and planning ahead can help people receive the care they want. It also give them a greater sense of control and can help to make things easier for family and carers.


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

  • Explain the meaning of planning for the last years of life and why we need it;
  • Discuss why it can be difficult to talk about dying and end of life care with those who have a learning disability;
  • Discuss how end of life wishes can be recorded in an advance care plan and explain your role in the advance care planning process;
  • Use a range of strategies and skills to initiate conversations about planing for end of life and support those with learning disabilities to put plans in place.
