DYING MATTERS SERIES (5)

Who should attend:

Everyone and anyone whether staff member, volunteer, friend or colleague who can join us in person and wants to consider how dying matters to those around us at work and beyond.

 

Course Aims:

An opportunity to help people start talking about why dying matters at work and beyond.

Objectives:

  • How might we recognise deterioration in those around us?
  • What support might individuals need?
  • What conversations might be important?
  • What about money, funerals, legal issues?
  • What about support for carers and those who are bereaved

We know from the carers’ work at the Hospice that having appropriate knowledge in these areas can be very helpful when supporting people if they become less well in the future. We also know that it tends to be better to think about these areas earlier rather than later.

Claire Nicell

Joint Head of Education and Learning

Claire is a Bachelor of Nursing with more than 30 years of clinical experience in many different settings. Throughout her career she has always had a keen interest in teaching and palliative care; so her present role as Lecturer Practitioner is her ideal job!

Her palliative care experience has involved working in hospitals, hospices and as a Community Specialist Palliative Care Nurse. More recently her focus and experience has switched to education. Within Hertfordshire she was part of the ABC project delivering palliative and end of life care to care homes throughout the county and then spent 18 months with the palliative care team at Watford General Hospital implementing The Rose Project (to promote dignity and respect at the end of life).

Claire loves working collaboratively with different colleagues across the social and health care sectors and helping individuals apply the principles of palliative care to their setting to promote excellent palliative care for those they care for.

She keeps her hand in clinically by working with her colleagues in the Community Palliative Care team and supporting a support group for patients with Pulmonary Fibrosis to ensure she practices what she teaches!
