Innovation in education
for end-of-life care

In recent decades, the population has been living longer and with complex comorbidities, which results in significant challenges for many health systems around the world.

Focusing on educating and training the workforce that provides most end-of-life care is a key strategy for ensuring that the dying process is attended by professionals with skill and compassion.

In free translation, QELCA © (Quality End of Life Care for All) means Quality End of Life Care for All. Developed by the British health institution St Christopher's Hospice – the world's birthplace of Palliative Care –, the program seeks to empower teams of professionals from any area or clinical discipline to lead the provision of high quality care to patients at the end of life and their families.

The QELCA© Program
Facilitator Training

®

Initially developed in partnership with the King's Fund, the QELCA© program has been implemented across the UK in collaboration with Hospice UK and the NHS. It is currently implemented in countries such as Canada, China, Australia, South Korea, Argentina and Brazil.

QELCA© is an intellectual property program of St Christopher's Hospice. Any institution wishing to offer the program needs to be registered as a QELCA© Facilitator. In Brazil, training is offered by Instituto Premier, based on the QELCA© Training of the Facilitator program.

The program is designed to be taught by experienced Palliative Care professionals who have valuable skills in managing the symptoms (physical, psychosocial and spiritual) experienced at the end of life. The same person-centered approach is used to support and enable participants to improve end-of-life care where they work.
