This competency framework has been developed to support high quality practice by encouraging and assisting end of life care facilitators to continually review their learning and practice.
It provides a basis to support and improve the quality of practice by encouraging and assisting learning, and enhancing knowledge and skills. Based on best practice guidelines, in addition to national and local frameworks, this competency framework will help to capture evidence that will:
Support the development of the NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework (KSF) profiles
Demonstrate the readiness for career progression
Support ongoing registration with professional bodies
Support development into the role of end of life care facilitator.
It is designed to support facilitators' development by identifying the extent of knowledge and skill required for that level of practitioner. The framework is not intended to be a comprehensive, definitive guide. Individual job descriptions and person specifications give details of what is expected of end of life care facilitators - this framework is to be used as an aid to developing individual roles.
