Courses

Due to Covid-19 restrictions we have postponed all face to face training until further notice.

To support staff with key skills and essential training for End of Life we are working with Hospice colleagues to support a timetable of training via Zoom. Trainers will be from palliative care experts, including the following hospices: ellenor, Pilgrims, Heart of Kent and supported by colleagues in KCHFT.

To book on these sessions

1. Staff will need to have access to zoom - you might want to practice with Zoom prior to the training to trouble shoot any I.T issues

2. Follow the Eventbrite link to book a place on each session you are interested in

3. Log on 5-10 minutes before the start of the session 

4. Have pen and paper on hand to participate in the sessions
