The Cambridge-based hospice is the new regional centre for the GSF, and believes that it is ideally placed to deliver the programme, making full use of its specialists with multi-disciplinary expertise.
At last week’s launch event, Barbara Walker from the GSF national team (pictured above) spoke to representatives from care and residential homes, as well as nurses and palliative care professionals, answering questions and detailing the benefits of participating in the programme.
Kay Hardwick, education team lead at Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, said: “It was inspiring to listen to Barbara share her experiences of delivering GSF and how it has benefited patients and staff in care and residential homes. The programme helps organisations to evidence the good care they are providing and build on this. ARHC is delighted to be able to offer the programme locally.”
The training programme is made up of six workshops, with the first programme beginning in September. Sessions will be delivered jointly by staff from Arthur Rank and the national GSF team at the hospice’s Mill Road site in Cambridge.
