Margaret Foulkes, Social Worker
I found this a particularly interesting course, which I would certainly recommend to all staff in the NHS, not just Palliative Care. I would recommend it to AHPs and Social Workers, even to staff who feel that they have done some counselling courses, communication courses or solution-focussed therapy etc.
It is also appropriate for people who feel they have a strong faith and know a lot about this area of work and to those who have no faith, because it focusses on patient need and how to meet this. It also gets everyone to look at broader issues and realise, in discussion, how different everyone is and yet, how we all have something to offer and how important it is to pick up on the cues, when patients need to talk.
