Skills for end-of-life care

Providing end of life care requires specific skills and knowledge, so Skills for Care has partnered with Health Education England to create two learning pathways to help care workers learn what they need to know.  The aim is to ensure the workforce can deliver end of life care confidently and competently and the learning pathways offer more than 180 peer-reviewed and regularly updated e-learning sessions. One of the pathways is for care workers, the other for nurses working in care homes.  Sessions are grouped into nine modules covering advance care planning, communication skills, symptom management, social care, bereavement care, spiritual care, integrating learning in end-of-life care and specialist care.  More information at
