Six Steps to Success – End of Life Care Programme

 

The Six Steps to Success Programme encompasses the philosophy of palliative care under pinned by national guidance. The programme has been adapted from the original by the Countess Mountbatten House Palliative Care Education Team for implementation locally. To date 44 care homes have completed it alongside individual staff.

The programme aims to improve the identification, treatment and care management of patients/residents approaching end of life as set out in the Ambitions for Palliative & End of Life Care (2015-2020) with a core focus of achieving good quality end of life care through organisational change and supporting staff to develop their roles, responsibilities, knowledge and skills around end of life care.

The programme consists of 2 half study days and 4 full study days encompassing all aspects of the six steps pathway. This will include an introduction, the six steps, conclusion and an additional study day relating to Communication and Dementia.

There is an expectation that a portfolio of evidence will be completed at the end to demonstrate how the programme has been implemented into practice.

Those on the programme must be committed and engaged to this process by supporting 2-3 staff members to attend all sessions. With one staff member being a senior member of staff who can support, embed and sustain organisational change.
