Resources You Might Find Helpful

We’ve collected together a wide range of resources, from presentations and conference notes to whitepapers and training materials, which we feel anyone in a palliative care social work role may find interesting. Due to differences in some of the legislation and governance structures in Scotland. Wales, Northern Ireland and England we will aim to include some resources that are specific to each of these individual countries. This may take us a little while to assemble so please bear with us in the short term.

If you feel you have other resources that you’d like to share then please feel free to send them into secretary@apcsw.org.uk for consideration.
