Training Workshop: End of Life Care Conversations and Planning

A training workshop for people who have to care for and support people at the end of their lives is being held near Bristol.

Called “end of life care conversations and planning” the workshop will be held at Bristol Memorial Woodlands on Thursday March 9. It will be run in partnership with Gentle Dusk, which specialises in end of life care and planning.

It follows the success of previous bereavement workshops at Bristol Memorial Woodlands organised with Mireille Hayden, founding director of Gentle Dusk and is free to professionals who work in the sector.

The half-day workshop aims to build the skills and confidence of professionals in initiating conversations about end of life care and increasing their knowledge of end of life care planning.

Said Mireille Hayden: “We will be looking at why it is difficult to talk with clients about dying and end of life care; discuss how people can record their wishes and make a care plan and reflect on what is important to people as they near the end of life.”

The workshop has been successfully run for professionals from a variety of backgrounds including social work, medical staff, doctors and nurses; supported accommodation and care home providers, community organisations, faith groups and carers’ organisations. The workshop is engaging and participatory and has received very positive feedback.

This event is at Bristol Memorial Woodlands, Alveston on Thursday 9th March from 14:00 to 17:30. The training is free for all professionals working in the Bristol and surrounding area.
