End of life care core skills education and training framework

Skills for Health, March 2017

This framework, developed in partnership with Skills for Care and Health Education England, promotes greater collaboration between organisations in the health and care sectors and in the community. The framework sets out standards for staff education and training and classifies key skills and knowledge into three tiers, ranging from general end of life care awareness to the in-depth knowledge needed to care for and support an individual approaching the end of their life, and their family. A accompanying training pack has been developed to increase awareness and understanding of the importance of working together to support people at the end of their lives.
