Abstract

End-of-life care training has a positive impact on healthcare professionals’ ability and confidence to deliver palliative care.1With essential training, healthcare professionals may develop a better understanding of, and better skills for, advance care planning (ACP), which will be helpful when they care for older people with long-term conditions and at risk of losing mental capacity due to dementia.2 In nursing homes, with proper staff training, highstandard palliative care can become an effective alternative to aggressive medical treatment for residents living with dementia.3 This article discusses findings from three questionnaires administered between July and December 2014 to evaluate the impact of an end-of-life care training workshop delivered to 156 staff working for the Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group in England. It was organised by the National Council for Palliative Care (NCPC), an umbrella charity working across the statutory, voluntary and independent sectors for all those involved in palliative, end-of-life and hospice care in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
