Manorlands hospice education and training

We run training sessions on a variety of subjects, and provide high quality clinical training placements for students from different disciplines, including medicine, allied health professions and nursing.

Our purpose and aims of training and education is that all staff including clinical and non-clinical employees of Manorlands has the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to be competent to provide high-quality service and support for people approaching the end of life and their families and carers. In addition we have an interesting Induction package for new starters and offer training and professional development opportunities to our staff. We use external training providers and partner organisations both for e-health training and face to face training.

We are also partners in the Managed Clinical Network for Palliative and End of Life Care, working closely with other providers of specialist palliative care in Bradford Airedale and Craven in leading and delivering education and training across area. We are employer and delivery partners in the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Excellence Centre working with employers in West Yorkshire from the NHS, independent and voluntary sectors to coordinate and implement high-quality skills programmes for bands 1-4

We offer Sue Ryder Care human rights training programme, 'What Matters to Me: a Human Rights Approach to End of Life Care'. These workshops covered an introduction to the Human Rights Act and the key Articles that relate most to end of life care, how human rights and their application provides a framework to help ethical decision-making, and how to raise human rights issues. Manorlands supports the wider health and training economy by providing student and training placements for medical staff, nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and other professions. We have strong links to our partnering vocational organisations and higher educational institutions.

Staff development

Our staff are expected to learn and develop their skills and knowledge in order to perform to their full potential. To achieve this, we actively promote a learning and development culture.

We provide an in depth induction programme for the first six months of employment, and design and deliver both formal and workplace ongoing staff training and education to support end of life care of the highest quality.

Palliative Care Concepts and Practice module

Please note that Manorlands Hospice will not be offering the University of West London Palliative Care Concepts and Practice module in 2018. It may be offered again at this location in future.
