Education

Woodlands Hospice recognises the importance of education in ensuring that people with life-limiting illness receive the right care at the right time in the right place. Not only is it crucial for our own staff to keep their knowledge and skills up to date, it is important to build confidence and competence in caring for these patients in professionals who work in specialities other than Palliative Care.

We collaborate with the Specialist Palliative Care teams at Aintree University Hospital and Liverpool Community Health to deliver education in an integrated fashion by professionals from all settings to professionals from all settings.
