If you are experiencing problems booking a course please email Education@stelizabethhospice.org.uk, clearly stating the name of the course, the date of the course you wish to attend, your name and contact details.
Places are limited so it will be on a first come first served basis.
Senior clinicians, specialists in palliative and end of life care, from St Elizabeth Hospice and St Helena Hospice are working together to deliver sessions on a wide range of topics.
These sessions will consist of a 45 minute presentation followed by a 45 minute case study – delegates are able to attend both or one of the 45 minute sessions.
The presentation will start at 6.00 pm, with a short 5 minute break at 6.45 pm, to allow those attending the case study only to join and those not wishing to attend the case study to leave the session. All sessions will be recorded.
Suitable for doctors, specialist nurses and senior nurses working regularly with patients with palliative care needs in the community, hospital or hospice.
Sessions can be booked on an individual basis.

Important Information – due to the high numbers of delegates failing to attend these sessions previously, we have reluctantly decided that any delegate failing to notify email@example.com before the event, or as soon as is reasonably practicable, that they are unable to attend, will be excluded from the following two sessions.
Here at St Elizabeth Hospice it is important to us that we are able include everyone with different backgrounds and make the education experience accessible for all. If you have any special requirements or need any reasonable adjustments to be made please email firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of attending the training.
