Education and Training

Educating ourselves, the community and fellow healthcare professionals.

The Rowans Hospice is an independent healthcare provider, working collaboratively with local NHS Trusts to provide a diverse programme of evidence and practice-based healthcare education and training. We are all committed to the ideal that provision of good healthcare education is central to good palliative care.

Healthcare Education Courses

We have an extensive in-house training programme for staff and volunteers and a range of courses for external practitioners of all disciplines and grades. This includes our monthly Lunchtime Education Forum.

Training is provided by a variety of speakers, both from within the hospice and outside. Sessions are designed to incorporate a range of learning opportunities through taught theory, reflection, group work, participation and discussion.

Professional Placements

We provide training placements for medical, nursing and other professionals allied to healthcare. Further details can be found on our professional development page.
