​Feedback from previous attendees...

  • Thank you all for arranging these study days.It was an incredibly helpful and exhilarating day.It was exhilarating learning but really being surrounded by likeminded nurses who like pushing the boundaries to deliver the best care for their patients.
    The case study from the hospice was both emotional but incredibly inspiring (and exciting), it would be a real privilege to work in such a team!  It was an awesome day, thank you to all involved!!

  • Advance Care Planning Conversations

Palliative Care

  • Identifying and managing a variety of mental health crises



  • Understanding referral pathways/ language/ prescribing considerations/ difficult conversations

Please note that a large part of this day is arranged so that you will understand each discipline's perspective through delivery of group discussions and case studies.
