The workshop is at an advanced level and builds on the taster session at Stage One of the Doula Training.   It will equip the Doula with the knowledge and skills to work confidently and competently with individuals, at any stage, to plan for their end of life.  Additionally it prepares the Doula to run community events and raise public awareness on this very important issue, which is fundamental to the role. 

The development of the workshop has involved considerable research, attendance at seminars for health care professionals, thorough reference to the best practice whilst validating the practical application of the learning and materials to the work of the End of Life Doula.  We believe we have an excellent model to equip Doulas to carry out Advance Planning.

The workshop provides Doulas with the knowledge and skills to undertake Advance Planning (Advance Decisions/Care Plans/Statement of Wishes and Choices/Refusals).  As well as covering the legal aspects, such as Lasting Power of Attorney and the Mental Capacity Act,  it embraces the ‘how’ to conduct the conversation with a person to enable the formulation of written Advance Plan for End of Life.

The LWDW Advance Planning Tool Kit will be provided to all those who successfully complete the learning and development so they can work with and support clients together with suggestions on how to run Community Events to raise public awareness

In advance of the workshop delegates will be provided with notes to refresh the training already received and will be asked to do some preliminary thinking about their own Advance Plan.

  • The Advance Planning Umbrella
