An updated learning path has been added to the e-learning programme End of Life Care for All (e-ELCA) designed for care workers supporting people near the end of life.
The aim of the learning path is to provide care assistants with a greater understanding and confidence when caring for individuals near the end of life and to offer support for their families. It’s relevant for those working in care homes and domiciliary care/care at home services.
The learning path has been updated with support from Skills for Care and includes core and additional recommended e-learning sessions.
The e-ELCA e-learning programme was developed by Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) and the Association for Palliative Medicine (APM) to enhance the training and education of the health and social care workforce.
The Skills for Care learning path for care workers supporting a person near the end of life learning path is available on the e-LfH Hub.
