Skip to 0 minutes and 55 seconds Our MOOC on improving palliative care in care homes for old people will help you understand more about how to start, or enhance, palliative care for old people. We will introduce you to new ideas and research about how to apply the principles of palliative care in care homes that will benefit older residents, and give staff more confidence and skills. The PACE Steps to Success programme we’ll show you how to make six practical and organisational changes to improve care for older people, their families, and staff, working both in, and with, care homes. Practical examples demonstrating how to use each new step have been filmed in care homes in Belgium, England, Finland, the Netherlands, Poland, and in Switzerland.
Skip to 1 minute and 49 seconds Care home staff will share their experiences of implementing the PACE Steps to Success programme, highlighting what they’ve learned. We will draw upon evidence from a large European project called PACE, Palliative Care for Older People. So if you’re working in a care home as a care worker, a nurse, a manager, or a link to care homes, perhaps as a physician, a nurse, or a social worker, then this course is for you. It’s also suitable if you’re interested in older people through your work, or perhaps as a family member. Please join us by registering on this website.
