Education in Palliative Care

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses continuing professional development (CPD) within the overall context of the palliative care workforce. It investigates perceptions and individual attitudes surrounding CPD and how CPD can be evaluated to show that it impacts on the patient. It examines ways of assessing CPD needs, both for the individual and for the organization. It also discusses workforce development issues in relation to CPD with a specific emphasis on attempting to ensure the effective incorporation of CPD for all staff, in a complex working environment with multiple and competing priorities. Lastly, it offers an analysis of selected CPD methods, including a range of practical hints to ensure that these activities are appropriate to the specific context within which the individual practises. The methods include examples of new or creative provision, which can enhance the integration of learning within the palliative care workplace.

Keywords:   CPD, palliative care, workforce development, learning integration, quality improvement
