The QELCA programme aims to increase knowledge of the principles and practice of palliative/end of life care for registered nurses caring for residents, patients and families at end of life in the care home and hospital settings.

QELCA involves a 5 day course attended at Strathcarron hospice. Training is delivered to small groups of up to 6 at the most. Each participant will then be expected to attend 6 monthly action learning sets thereafter to facilitate the process of embedding learning into practice.

The week course of the QELCA© programme will involve a facilitator working with the small group of nurses on the Monday, Wednesday and Friday and to spend Tuesday and Thursday in the hospice in a supernumerary capacity alongside hospice staff for a working shift.
