This unique workshop (run by experienced facilitators at St. Wilfrid’s Hospice and Midhurst Macmillan Team) for senior staff engaging in advance care planning and end of life discussions.

Sage & Thyme ACP® is a Level 2 communication skills workshop suitable for senior staff working at Band 6 and above (e.g. GPs, healthcare staff, social workers, lawyers) who have experience of advance care planning/end of life care/Gold Standards Framework.

This 3 hour workshop will focus on effective communications skills that help to open an advance care planning conversation.  The structure provides a consultation guide as concerns and issues are disclosed.

Please note the workshop does NOT cover: breaking bad news, Mental Capacity Act, or specific documents such as ‘preferred priorities of care’.

This workshop has been developed into a virtual format and run by two licensed facilitators – one from St. Wilfrid’s Hospice and one from Midhurst Macmillan Team.
