New palliative and end of life care education framework

A new palliative and end of life care education framework has been created to support the learning and development needs of the health and social care workforce.

The education framework has been developed following The Scottish Government, who in their Strategic Framework for Action on Palliative and End of Life Care, made 10 commitments towards a national vision by 2021, that everyone in Scotland who needs palliative care and end of life care will have access to it.

To support all the health and social service workforce, NHS Education for Scotland (NES) and the Scottish Social Service Council (SSSC) were commissioned to develop a framework that would offer a way of identifying the knowledge and skills required by all workers who might come in to contact with people who have palliative and end of life care needs.
