Education Centre
Saint Francis Hospice has launched a training module designed for all health and social care professionals providing palliative and end of life care for LGBT people.

The module aims to increase awareness of the specific needs of those from the LGBT community and is based on current guidance from Marie Curie, Care Quality Commission, National Council for Palliative Care, and national and international research.

The one and a half hour training module will be piloted amongst health and social care professionals who work as part of a hospice service. However, any care professional is welcome to attend regardless of place of work.

The training will be evaluated using a brief pre and post-session questionnaire. Also, a small number of participants will be asked to participate in a short interview that will focus on their experiences of the training module.
