Education and training

The shortage of trained health professionals and volunteers is one of the major barriers to hospice and palliative care development worldwide.

Our education and training activities, in collaboration with our partners, include:

  • a worldwide grants programme for education and training in palliative care in developing countries
  • a service supporting clinical placements and volunteering in the UK and worldwide
  • developing education and training resources, including a palliative care toolkit
  • managing a database of education and training events for hospice and palliative care services in the UK and worldwide.
