JCECC Leadership Training Programme 2017

Tomorrow’s leaders in end-of-life care (EoLC) are expected to be effective, innovative, strategic and flexible in responding to the emerging challenges of global aging. The JCECC Leadership Training Programme 2017-2018 aims to nurture a group of leaders in community EoLC. The programme will recruit leaders in the community to review the international best practices and standard of clinical excellence in community EoLC. The leaders will be exposed to the state-of-the-art, evidence-based and innovative practices in quality community EoLC for patients and their family caregivers. The practice-based learning approach will empower leaders to develop EoLC services in their own work settings, through exemplary clinical care, international best practices, and evidence-based skills training.
