Supporting carers in end of life care: an introductory programme

This training programme and resource pack, produced by the University of Nottingham and funded by Marie Curie and Dimbleby Cancer Care, are intended to offer basic knowledge and skills for those who provide support for informal carers (usually family members or friends) who are providing home-based end of life care. There are seven sessions in the programme, which can be facilitated over a one-day course; each session contains extra content and exercises that can be used to expand the programme. The sessions are: introduction and welcome; caring and being cared for; supporting in practice; being a safe supporter; the principles of supporting; boundaries and exit strategies; and ongoing learning and development. The training pack comprises: a facilitator handbook; a trainee workbook; resources selected by bereaved carers; pre-course reading; a promotional poster template; and session slides.
