End-of-life care: Getting it right every time

RCN launches new end of life care resource

Getting it right every time RCN

The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has developed a new resource, Getting it right every time. This resource has been designed to offer support in the delivery of appropriate end of life care alongside existing training. It has been developed in line with the Getting it right every time: nutrition and hydration at the end of life online resource which can be used for more in depth learning around delivery of nutrition and hydration care at the end of life.

Who is it for?

This resource is for you if you are a registered nurse, student nurse, health care assistant (HCA) or assistant practitioner working in any setting or specialism. The aim is to give you an understanding of your role when it comes to meeting the needs of people with life limiting illnesses. You can work through this resource at your own pace either all at once, or by one of the “bite sized” pieces of learning whenever it is convenient for you.

It might also be useful for others in health and social care. Members of the public may also find the content of this resource valuable.
