We are a University Hospice with links to the University of the West of Scotland. Our education service is renowned as a centre of educational excellence and aims to ensure that health and social care professionals have access to specialist palliative care education.
We specialise in the education, training and development of professionals in a range of health and social care settings and have expertise in all aspects of palliative care. We offer a number of courses at the hospice as well as providing clinical placements for student nurses, junior doctors and other health and social care professionals who want to gain insight into hospice care.
Our education provision includes a variety of annual and ongoing initiatives delivered at different educational levels to meet the needs of individual learners and caring organisations. The service is also involved in initiatives at both local and national level meeting the need of individual professionals as well as caring organisations. Local events are held at the hospice as well as in other venues across the NHS Ayrshire & Arran region.
