In a nutshell: A hospice run training programme in Romford on end of life care for paramedics has resulted in a reduction in avoidable hospitalizations. The training sessions cover subjects such as just in case boxes, medication, syringe drivers, GSF, LCP, PPC and general trouble-shooting. One outcome has been an improvement in partnership working within the community teams. Additionally, a booklet containing examples of best practice and examples of end of life care scenarios has been produced and is now carried by all paramedics in Romford.
