The main aim of our education programme is to support the development of a multi-disciplinary team which is able to deliver high quality palliative care to all those who need it irrespective of diagnosis or place of care. We may also be able to provide bespoke training, depending on your needs. The following courses are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Podcasts

Welcome to the first of a monthly series of podcasts for professionals for GPs and all health professionals.

Local specialists in Palliative Care have come together from across Dorset to provide a series of education modules for Doctors working in General Practice. They may be useful for all clinical staff working in the community and in Palliative Care. As new modules are released each month, we will post the hyperlink below and we would be grateful for your feedback to the GP hub after you have listened to it. Please follow instructions at the beginning of each podcast to obtain your CPD certificate. On this month’s podcast our Associate Specialist, Dr Kevin Bolster, joins Dr Kate Smeaton to discuss nausea and vomiting.
