Abstract

This article reports on an innovative educational pathway for district and community nurses aimed at enhancing confidence and competence in dealing with end of life care (EoLC). Nurses were aligned with a mentor from a specialist palliative care team and, after completing a training needs analysis, created their own development plan. Participants undertook a range of formal and informal education, and a rise in confidence was identified, specifically in communication skills and symptom management. Such practice-based education may offer a powerful and convenient approach to EoLC education for community staff.
