About the Course:
Following on from our successful scoping session in 2017 we have recognised a need for education in this area. This one day course aims to bring health care professionals from both disciplines together with the primary objective of learning from each other. The programme will allow for collaborative work during sessions alongside separate sessions for each discipline. This session will be led by Karenann Spicer, Director of Education and Research in collaboration with the Hertfordshire Hospice Consortium and HPFT mental health team.
