New end of life care elearning pathway for healthcare support workers
A new learning path designed for health care assistants working with people near the end of life has been added to the End of Life Care for All (e-ELCA) elearning programme.
The aim of the learning path is to provide health care assistants with a greater understanding and confidence when working with individuals near the end of life and to offer support for their families. It is relevant for all settings including care homes and domiciliary care.
It was created with support from the Royal College of Nursing and includes core and additional recommended e-learning sessions.
The e-ELCA elearning programme was developed by Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) and the Association for Palliative Medicine (APM) to enhance the training and education of the health and social care workforce.
The Royal College of Nursing learning path for healthcare support workers is available on the elfh Hub.
