Patients, Families and carers

Partnership services

The Dove House Hospice Practice Development & Education Department primarily helps health care professionals.

Not only to understand more about the work we do here at Dove House, but also to reach out into the community and further the care that is so widely needed.

Here at Dove House, we understand that many different people are affected by life-limiting illnesses. Our Study Sessions are available to anyone who is involved with end of life care. The sessions will enable health and social care workers to provide best care and support to patients and families. We offer courses, study days/evenings, Hospice information afternoons, Hospice lectures and interactive workshops.

The sessions we run:

  • End of Life Care
  • Bereavement support (for those supporting bereaved)
  • Supporting bereaved children - for teachers and others working with children
  • Bespoke courses for nursing and residential homes
  • Pain Control and the different types of cancer
