Assessment and Management of Sleep in Palliative Care

Calendars: UK.

July 14th at St Ann’s Hospice, Greater Manchester

For anyone interested in the science of sleep there is an Assessment and Management of Sleep in Palliative Care course on 14th July. Subjects covered will include how sleep changes with ageing, the different types of insomnia and an introduction to assessment approaches and treatment options that have proven efficacy.

Jude Holt, Head of Practice Development at St Ann’s Hospice, said: “Sharing our knowledge and experience is one of our greatest passions at St Ann’s. This year’s schedule of training and education courses has been devised to reflect the key topics in palliative and end of life care at the moment, such as anxiety and sleep, as well as helping healthcare professionals to refresh and expand their skills.

“We also have a range of course formats to offer flexibility, so alongside the one and two-day courses we will be running shorter sessions like our monthly Lunchtime Bites, which are three hour courses focusing on subjects like dementia and end of life, grief and bereavement care, symptom control and palliative care emergencies. Lunch is also included to make it easier for attendees to fit these into their working day. All of our courses are open to clinical and non-clinical staff from various care settings, for example, the 20th May Hand Massage and Hearts course is perfect for anyone working in a caring role in a hospice or hospital, care home or in people’s homes.”
