Training & Development

We are committed to ensuring quality end-of-life care and support the health and social care workforce through our passionate Education Team.

Sharing knowledge, expertise and experience

At St Michael’s Hospice, we’ve always valued sharing knowledge with professionals and learning from them.

Since 1990, our education services for nurses, doctors, and various professionals have expanded. We offer these services within the Hospice and in external healthcare settings.

We prioritise supporting carers and have established multiple support groups. Sharing our knowledge benefits both professional and non-professional carers, enhancing community care now and in the future.

Bespoke Training

We can develop tailor-made packages to suit the needs of your team on any aspect relevant to palliative care.

Conference & Room Hire

We can offer large state-of-the art training and conference rooms to suit your needs, all with stunning views.

Placement Opportunities

We offer a variety of placements, including those for professionals as well as work experience for school and college students.

Project ECHO®

We collaborate with St Richard’s Hospice in Worcester as a Project ECHO hub. Using video conferencing, we share expertise and encourage best practices. This service is free for healthcare professionals in Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

Our training sessions consist of 45 minutes of focused teaching on a specific topic, followed by an interactive 45-minute discussion where participants learn from each other.

St Michael’s Hospice’s palliative care training courses have been transformative for my career. The comprehensive and insightful programs provided me with invaluable knowledge and skills, enabling me to deliver compassionate and high-quality care to patients.
