For 12 years she lectured part-time at the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery at Kings College London, supporting the delivery of evidence-based palliative and end of life care academic education. This is a role she relinquished in order to focus fulltime on leading, as Director of Education and Training at St Christopher’s, the design of the ‘Learning Hub’ building and concept.
Liz is committed to driving local, national and international development of palliative and end of life care. 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 whole workforce including support staff, volunteers and family carers, who provide the bulk of the care to people approaching the end of life. Liz designed the QELCA© Programme which is now being delivered by satellites in the UK and abroad.
