Education and Development

We specialise in delivering end of life care training for health and social care professionals from a wide range of organisations, including the NHS, care homes, voluntary sector and local authorities. By sharing our expertise, we aim is to help raise standards of end of life care and ensure that patients and their families receive the care and support they need in the place of their choice.

Our courses are held at The Monckton Education Centre, our new training venue, which is located adjacent to Heart of Kent Hospice in Aylesford. Delivered by our team of clinical specialists, the courses are designed to include a range of learning opportunities and approaches taught through theory, reflections, group work, participation and discussion. Many of our courses are available to carers and volunteers. Click on the training courses button below to view our list of courses and to book online.
