Sharing knowledge on a national stage

, ,

Tynedale Hospice at Home will be showcasing its innovative approach to learning and development and audit when Senior Nurses Sylvia Ritson and Sandie Faircloth, attend Hospice UK’s national conference in Liverpool next week (22-24 November). 

Hospice UK conference 2017 is the flagship event for the hospice and palliative care community and for those interested in Leading, Learning and Innovating.

They’ve been invited to display a poster ‘Tynedale Hospice at Home: Coming of Age’.  It will reflect the progress the Hospice has made in promoting training and development and auditing our quality of care in the Leading, Learning and Innovating category.

 

 

Sandie said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have been invited to share our poster which reflects how far Tynedale Hospice at Home has come over the years.  The poster will be seen by a wide range of services and professionals attending the national event and we’ll have the opportunity to share ideas and best practice with others in the Hospice sector.  It’s a brilliant opportunity and we’re delighted to be involved.”

We’re celebrating Team Hospice this Hospice Care Week

It’s Hospice Care Week all this week (9-15 October) and we’d love you to get involved!  Each year we join Hospice UK and other local hospices for a week of celebration and action. It’s a chance for us to reflect on the difference hospice care makes to people’s lives and to thank everyone involved in making it possible.

The theme this year is ‘We are hospice care’ and we will be using the week to shine a spotlight on the amazing individuals helping us to provide expert, compassionate and free care to people with terminal or life-shortening illnesses.

From our nursing care staff, our volunteers, our trustees and our supporters, we couldn’t provide the vital, compassionate care we do without their expertise and dedication – and your support.

Please support Hospice Care Week by:

  • Getting in touch about volunteering with us by calling our main office on 01434 600 388
  • Making a donation. Every pound donated makes a different to providing our vital care – a £20 donation will provide one hour of palliative nursing care to someone who needs it in a place of their choosing. Visit www.tynedalehospice.com/donate/
