End of Life Care Core Skills Education and Training Framework

Health Education England commissioned Skills for Health and Skills for Care to expand the 'Common Core Principles and Competences for Social Care and Health Workers Working with Adults at the End of Life' into this 'Core Skills Education and Training Framework for End of Life Care'.

This framework has been developed to align with the current Dementia, Mental health and Learning Disabilities Frameworks all of which will sit under the overarching framework for Person-Centred Care.

In particular, it aims to promote community development and asset-based approaches to education and training, considering the strengths, abilities and potential of communities in supporting end of life care.
