Working in collaboration with Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust we are carrying out an end-of-life skills survey to identify the end-of-life care learning and development needs of community, acute and social care staff involved with providing palliative/end-of-life care.

Caring for people at the end-of-life was highlighted in the 2008 End-of-Life Strategy as one of the most rewarding and important areas of care – it is essential that practitioners feel confidently equipped with the relevant skills and knowledge to provide the best quality of care during this important phase of life.

Launching today, the end-of-life skills survey will be available within the Oldham locality and participants will be identified by Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust and the Oldham End-of-Life Partnership Group.
