Educational Support for Care Homes

We’re delighted to say that our face-to-face training sessions for small groups for Verification of Death and Syringe Driver Use have re-started.  You can see what courses we have on offer in our Training Calendar HERE.

We also offer bespoke training – contact us to discuss your requirements by emailing education@cornwallhospice.co.uk or by phoning 01726 65711.

In the meantime, we hope you will also find the following information helpful. We will be adding additional information and topics as we develop our resources.

If you require any further support or guidance in the meantime, please use Sue’s Question Spot to ask our Education Facilitator questions or for advice relating to End of Life Care.

E-learning for Health

e-LfH has removed the requirement to log in to access the Coronavirus (COVID-19) programme to make it as easy as possible for the health and care workforce to access the learning resources.

 

However, be aware that accessing the content without logging in means that your learning activity won’t be tracked and you won’t create a learning record.

 

If you wish to have a learning record to demonstrate your compliance you will need to have an e-LfH account and be logged in. You can register for an e-LfH account using any email address.

 

For more information about the programme, which is free for the health and care workforce to access without the need to register, visit
