Training and Education

At Cornwall Hospice Care we are committed to supporting people involved in all areas of End of Life Care. We offer high quality education and training to all staff across a wide range of settings, including hospitals, residential and nursing homes, care agencies and individual carers.


We’re pleased to say that during August 2020 we have resumed face-to-face training sessions for Verification of Death and Syringe Driver Use.  You can see the dates we have on offer in our Training Events calendar HERE.

We will shortly be advertising our Advance Care Planning study session (½ day) and End of Life Care study day. These will be face-to-face sessions for small groups. The cost per person for these courses will be £30 for ½ day and £60 for full day training. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided. Please email to register your interest.

We also offer bespoke training – contact us to discuss your requirements.

In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact the Education Department via email or phone 01726 65711 if we can be of any further help.


We aim to constantly improved services to patients and relatives by working collaboratively with partners in health and social care to ensure best practice standards are maintained.
