'Homeward Bound' Educational Resource Pack (includes a DVD and Workbook)
‘Homeward bound’ is a play written by playwright Brian Daniels to share the true story of Lesley and Seth Goodburn (played by Brian Daniels and Sophie Turner).
The play has been written to give people especially health and social care professionals, the opportunity to reflect on the importance of compassionate person and family centred care at the end of life and to help individuals to understand how little things mean a lot to the person who is dying and to their family.
The workbook includes four learning units which are designed to be used as standalone units and collectively they make up a comprehensive learning resource. These educational resources, which are aligned to the National HEE core competencies, can provide a catalyst for learning in a variety of different ways including individuals self-learning, or as an educational package for lecture practitioners, educators, and trainers. These resources could be used for example in the context of:
• Group learning via a study day
• Work based learning
• Taught sessions
• Part of a learning module on End of Life Care (EoLC)
• Short ward based teaching session
• Short burst sessions within induction training- delivering compassionate care
• Clinical Supervision
• Leadership programmes - focused training sessions on End of Life Care
• Professional groups
Who can benefit from these learning resources? These resources will benefit all of the professional groups outlined in the End of Life Care Core Skills Education and Training Framework (2016). If you are a palliative care educator this resource will provide you with a comprehensive resource to support learning or as an individual access to open learning and reflective practice to support revalidation.
