The Workforce and Education Network Forum

The Workforce and Education Forum is in place to identify, develop and influence multi-professional education and workforce planning for children’s and young person’s palliative and hospice care across Yorkshire and the Humber.  

Get In Touch

Children and young people with palliative care needs are cared for in every environment, assessing nurseries, schools and colleges, and primary care in the same way as their well peers.  In addition, they often access specialist services due to their underlying condition. We want to ensure that the care children, young people and their families receive is of the highest quality, safe and relevant.  It must meet the needs of child, always seeing the child first, before their condition.

 
Working across health, social care and education, and statutory and voluntary sectors, the Workforce and Education Subgroup aims to improve the knowledge, skills and competence of those who provide care to children and young people with life limiting conditions, together with their families. 
 
Through cross-organisational working and partnerships, we aim to enable the workforce through the introduction of education and development opportunities, such as eLearning, workshops and conferences, and development toolkits.
 
We meet four times per year, with a number of task and finish groups that focus on particular pieces of work.  The subgroup is currently chaired by Dr Michael Tatterton, who works at Martin House Children’s Hospice as a Consultant Nurse.
