Supporting People with Palliative Care Needs

Margarets story education and resource pack


The End of Life Care Programme

This e-learning programme End of Life Care for All (e-ELCA) aims to enhance the training and education of the health and social care workforce so that well-informed high quality care can be delivered by confident and competent staff and volunteers to support people who are in their last days of life.

Understanding the patient experience – Margaret’s story

This film and resource pack aim to provide education and increase awareness, allowing people to think about their individual rolls within health or social care and how and when they offer support to individuals.

We are immensely grateful to Margaret for sharing her story and giving us the opportunity to stop and think about how we can better support and work with people with a learning disability.

This film and resource pack are aimed at people working within: primary and secondary care, social care and third sector organisations who support individuals with a learning disability.

If you are viewing the film independently we ask you to look at the learning points within the Margaret’s story resource pack. The resource pack also includes a session plan, so the film can be shared as part of a team meeting or education event. To access a copy of the resource pack please click here.
