We have developed an accredited certification award for care homes who wish to improve their delivery of palliative and end of life care.
The St Elizabeth Hospice accredited certification for care homes shows your clients, families and professionals with whom you work, that you offer good professional standards in end of life care.
The award was created by the hospice and confirms that care homes have undertaken a supported self-improvement programme consisting of accredited training, education and development, to improve practice and raise standards of end of life care. The accredited certification checklist will validate your end of life practice with links to staff knowledge, skills and awareness.
Through a range of training, shadowing, and critical friend visits, the hospice works with care homes to develop the skills of their workforce and achieve best practice in end of life care.
