Training Courses

We are the Island’s specialists of training and education for end of life and palliative care. Through our education and training, we aim to improve confidence and competence for anyone working with those approaching end of life.

We are keeping the current situation under constant review and will be changing the way some of our planned training is delivered.  You will see some courses being delivered on line (usually via Zoom) or where face-to-face training works best, we will work with smaller classroom numbers. Please still book a place on the course you wish to attend and one of the Palliative Care Academy team will contact you.
