For 12 years she lectured part-time at the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery, supporting the delivery of evidence-based palliative and end of life care academic education. This is a role she has only recently relinquished in order to focus full time on leading the Education team as St Christopher’s builds a new education building and launches the Learning Hub.
As Director of Education and Training at St Christopher’s, Liz is committed to driving the national development of hospice-based education and training. Her particular focus is on designing and evaluating programmes of learning that have sustained impact on practice.
She also believes in the importance of consistency and quality of accredited work-based training for the generalist workforce (including support staff), who provide the bulk of the care to people approaching the end of life.
