Culture & Communication on End of life

Culture & Communication on End of life is a one-day workshop designed for staff working in community hospitals, nursing homes or long-term care settings. It aims to improve end-of-life care by enhancing communication skills so staff, at all levels, are better able to engage in discussions with residents about what is really important to them.

Topics Covered

  • Seeing things from a resident’s perspective – what matters most to each individual.
  • Exploration of what is involved in good end-of-life care.
  • Communication with residents about future wishes and end-of-life care.
  • Communication with family members about end-of-life care.
  • How to support residents when they are dying.

Workshop Outcomes

At the end of this workshop, participants will:

  • deliver a person-centred approach to end-of-life care.
  • contribute to safe, better end-of-life care for residents in your unit.
  • provide supportive care after death.
  • contribute to the end-of-life care planning process for residents in your unit.
  • gain effective communication skills during end-of-life care.
  • look after yourself by developing self-care practices.
