“I attended the Hospice Leadership programme in 2020/21. I found the course extremely beneficial as it emphasised the application of leadership models with the flexibility to apply these to practice. I do not work in a hospice setting but in the area of palliative and end of life care and this course was adaptable for me to be able to engage and learn alongside hospice colleagues. The course uses a blended approach of action learning and theory which was extremely helpful in working through our chosen projects. The projects were about implementing change for our employee organisation but I also found the course helped me to change as a leader. The course is run by knowledgeable experienced leaders who were able to guide the group and insert some fun along the way. I continue to refer back to the course material to support my practice.”
