Priorities for Care of the Dying Person (e-ELCA)

The care of people that are dying and support for their families is something that almost all health and social care staff contribute to, consider of great importance in their role and can get great satisfaction from. End of Life Care for All (e-ELCA) is a key resource for the development of staff to provide competent, compassionate and dignified care for patients at the end of life and support for their families.

The e-learning sessions in e-ELCA have been mapped to the learning objectives of the 'One Chance to Get it Right' report of the Leadership Alliance for Care of the Dying Person in 2014. A new training needs analysis session will help you identify your strengths and weaknesses and direct you to e-ELCA sessions to support your development:

Also, core and additional e-ELCA sessions for specific staff groups have been defined for: 

  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Allied health professionals
  • Social care managers
  • Social care workers
  • Healthcare managers
  • Healthcare administrators

The training needs analysis and the learning pathways can be found in ELCA 09 - Priorities for Care of the Dying Person within the e-ELCA programme.
