Image: End of Life Care Core Skills Education and Training Framework.Call for Consultation Responses

Health Education England, Skills for Health and Skills for Care have been working in collaboration to refresh the previous Common Core Principles and Competences for Social Care and Health Workers Working with Adults at the End of Life (2014). The refreshed document will be developed into an End of Life Care Core Skills Education and Training Framework (EoLC CSTF).

We are looking for the following to take part in our Consultation survey:

Roles that will have some regular contact with people receiving end of life care - for example:

  • Healthcare assistants/Care workers
  • General Practitioners
  • Doctors (not specialising in end of life care)
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Nurses
  • Social Workers
  • Leaders of community groups

Those in roles which frequently involve providing end of life care - for example:

  • Healthcare assistants/Care workers in end of life care services
  • Doctors specialising in end of life care
  • Occupational Therapists working in end of life care services
  • Nurses working in end of life care services
  • Social Workers working in end of life care services

The results of the survey will be used to further refine the framework, leading to the project completion by the end of 2016.
