Session Overview

In this session, looking at the needs of those informally caring for people approaching the end of life, we will consider how to:

  1. Recognise and identify carers, who may not always recognise themselves as carers.
  2. Be aware of the importance of ’checking-in’ with carers.
  3. Have a conversation about carers’ needs & facilitate their own plan for meeting them.
  4. Discuss available resources and signpost carers to them.
Learning Outcomes

• Build confidence to proactively discuss the caring role, using ‘Simple Skills Secrets’ communication skills model or equivalent
