End of Life Care for All (e-ELCA) is an e-learning project, commissioned by the Department of Health and delivered by e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) in partnership with the Association for Palliative Medicine of Great Britain and Ireland to support the implementation of the Department of Health’s national End of Life Care Strategy (July 2008).

e-ELCA aims to enhance the training and education of health and social care staff involved in delivering end of life care to people, so that well-informed high quality care can be delivered by confident and competent staff and volunteers, across health and social care, wherever the person happens to be.

There are over 150 highly interactive sessions of e-learning within e-ELCA. These are arranged in 4 core modules:

  • Advance Care Planning
  • Assessment
  • Communications Skills
  • Symptom Management, comfort and well being

as well as 3 additional modules (social care, bereavement and spirituality) and one Integrating Learning module which helps to consolidate and apply understanding in different situations.
