The Six Steps to Success programme is supported by mandatory stand alone education modules which include communication skills, advance care planning and Liverpool Care Pathway for the dying patient training.

This education should be arranged at key points along the programme and the delivery of this education is to be agreed in each local area delivering the programme.  

It could also include any other education providing theory and underpinning knowledge, for example symptom management.

Mandatory Supporting Education 1:

A workshop must be sourced, or provided, following the Step 2 workshop and before the Step 3 Workshop.

Education should be delivered on:

  • Communication Skills
  • Advance Care Planning

  • Advance Decision to Refuse Treatment
  • Do Not Attempt Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation
  • Lasting Powers of Attorney
  • Best Interest Decisions

All Care Home Representatives on the Six Step to Success Programme will need to attend this education workshop.  If possible this workshop should be opened to as many care home staff as possible.
