Latest news,

We are really excited to be able to offer a unique training opportunity for Somerset; No Barriers Here art-based Advance Care Planning Train the Trainer. On 8th April, we have a one-off day for Somerset.

‘No Barriers Here challenges misconceptions around talking about death and dying with people with learning disabilities and support the idea that using arts approaches in palliative care can shape rich conversations within our communities and challenge inequalities underserved populations experience’

Once complete, the training will enable you to support the creation of advance care plans (ACP) with people using a different approach. It will also facilitate the forward-teaching of this. Therefore there will be an expectation of those that attend, to deliver a minimum of 1 teaching workshop a year, as well as empowering and assisting people to create their own ACPs.

Please see the leaflet for more information about the training.

As we have a limited number of funded places, please complete the ‘expression of interest’ form with a brief explanation of why you would like to attend, and return to eolceducation@somersetft.nhs.uk by 12noon, Monday 7th March.
