In 2011, Skills for Care was commissioned by Yorkshire and Humber Strategic Health Authority (Y&H SHA) to develop and deliver a training programme focused on end of life service. Other activities in the specification included setting up a support network and developing resources for managers and champions, as well as raising awareness of end of life service quality issues with commissioners and regulators of care home services. 

This final report evaluates the two year project which involved 511 care homes offering 516 managers and 498 champions a chance to improve their end of life care knowledge and skills. This report provides the background to the project, and supplement 1 contains an analysis of surveys undertaken by managers and champions who completed the learning and development programme. Progress on the other workstreams is also included in the main body of the report, and views from a wide range of stakeholders and case studies demonstrating how the programme developed, and the learning taken forward, can be found in supplements 2 and 3.
