At the 2010 APDCL Conference the APDCL committee discussed the revised course for Day Care Leaders/ staff, titled ‘Developing and Delivering Quality Assured Palliative Day Care Services’.
The first course was held in February at Ashton University, Birmingham and it was a huge success. Feedback from delegates confirmed that this course provided the opportunity for delegates to reflect on their current practice and share best practice. A wide range of issues were covered and the course content was extremely pertinent to current day care practice. I have enclosed the evaluation for your interest.
APDCL Committee will be looking at dates for next year’s course, so watch this space!
Any queries please contact APDCL Chair.
This 2 day residential course is aimed at APCDL members who are Qualified Health and Social Care Professionals working in palliative day care settings and clinicians with an interest in day services.
