RE: Advance Care Planning Training Opportunity
I am writing to you to ask for your support within your organisation to promote staff attending a one-day Advance Care Planning (ACP) Training Course.
I know you will appreciate how important it is for patients to have the opportunity to
document their future wishes and preferences at end of life to aim for a prepared and planned death. Therefore, a group of specialist palliative care education centres in the North West of England joined together to form a regional network, The North West Coast Learning Collaborative (NWCLC) to design, deliver and quality assure a high-quality ACP programme for delivery across their localities. The NWCLC was successful in bidding for project funding from a partnership between Health Education England (working across the North West) Greater Manchester and Eastern Cheshire Strategic Clinical Networks and the North West Coast Strategic Clinical Networks.
This well evaluated programme has now already been delivered to range of frontline staff. The programme has also supported the development of Facilitators who have been trained to prepare and deliver the programme. This free programme is particularly aimed at frontline staff from health, social and voluntary sectors. I would be grateful if you could promote this training within your organisation by sharing this letter to your relevant colleagues. Details about how to book on a session: North West Coast here and Greater Manchester here.
Evaluations from Staff who have already undertaken the training have indicated that it was "a wonderful, informative day. Really makes you think about your practice and evaluate how you do things" and "Fantastic session, very educational and enjoyable. I will be recommending to colleagues. Thank you".
We do hope that your colleagues and organisation can benefit from this helpful development. Yours sincerely,
Dr Michael Farrell, Head of Education Transformation - North, Health Education England
