Education

Our Vision clearly states that we are committed to providing extraordinary end of life care to any person living with end stage terminal disease in the Cayman Islands.

The “best we can do” is unacceptable to us. Our patients deserve the best care possible and nothing less. This means our nurses and caregivers stay up to date with the latest pain control and symptom relief techniques and medications.

While educational material is available on the internet or in literature, the invaluable hands-on experience and training in other hospices around the world is also required.

The Cayman community has been very supportive of our continued education initiative.

Caribbean Palliative Care and Hospice Conference

We have had the privilege of hosting Palliative Care Conferences in 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016. Our goal with these international conferences is to broaden the palliative and end-of-life education and encourage not only our own staff but also our interdisciplinary colleagues, who share the same challenges and responsibilities as we do in hospice and palliative care.
