Invest in yourself!

The Learning and Development team at Mercy Hospice are committed to collaboratively building a broad range of knowledge, skills and capability to a wide range of clinical and non-clinical professionals in palliative care practice. 

We aim to do this by providing a variety of blended learning plans comprising of experiential face to face workshops and interactive E-learnings.  

Our learning plans strive to not only build skills and confidence across networks but also to support a shared care approach in whatever setting it is needed.
