At St Catherine’s Hospice, we’re leaders in helping people when life comes full circle and educating professionals in our field.
You can trust us to deliver pioneering standards of care at our hospice buildings and in people’s own homes, but we know there’s always more we can do.
Education, Training and Development
We help our staff stay up to date by providing education and supporting personal development to make sure we’re continuing to provide people with the highest quality care, and we educate other professionals, as we know providing everyone in our local community with excellent end of life care isn’t something we can do alone. Our courses are available here.
We’re already recognised for our outstanding work, including being acknowledged as one of the top three teams in the country at the national Infection Prevention Society Awards (IPS) for the innovative work we’ve done around preventing infection at our hospice.
We’re also proud to take part in research, working with patients, carers, external partners and staff on a number of exciting studies. These studies will help us and many other end of life professionals to better understand the needs of people we care for, provide an evidence base for treatments, find innovative ways of helping people at the end of their lives, and inform The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance.
Sharing Our Expertise
We promote our work with other end of life professionals by sharing practice and making presentations at prestigious UK and international palliative care conferences.
