In a nutshell: Over 700 care workers in Tees Valley have attended a one-day training course on end of life care. The training, which was developed and delivered by the Practice Development and Quality Nurse from Hartlepool and District Hospice, covers all aspects outlined in the Gold Standard Framework. It includes an end of day assessment and following successful completion, learners are issued with a certificate. As a result of the training care staff are more aware of how to provide support and care to someone who is dying and have an increased understanding of bereavement issues for family and carers.
