Accredited Six Steps End of Life Care Training Programme for Care Homes. We are now entering our third year of delivering the Six Steps End of Life Care training programme to residential and nursing homes across the region here at North Devon Hospice. We are committed to the provision of end of life care training for health care professionals in all settings to promote quality care for patients/residents.The Six Steps is a comprehensive training programme that offers care homes the opportunity to be competent and confident in provision of sensitive, compassionate end of life care for their residents. The Department of Health’s End of Life Care Strategy, published in 2008, emphasised the need to raise the quality of care provided to dying people and their loved ones in a variety of settings - including care homes.The strategy identified the need for care home staff to receive the training and support to ensure the provision of good end of life care. It recommended more coordinated services, which could see NHS and statutory social care authorities providing more support to care home staff and managers and their residents. Such support would reduce the number of unplanned hospital admissions ensuring more people can die in their care home if that is their expressed preference (DOH 2008). One of the outcomes was the publication of a training programme for care homes. “The route to the success in end of life care - achieving quality in care homes.�
