The  ‘Mayfly’ Advance Care Planning education and communication skills programme concentrates on supporting communication skills and advance care planning conversations.

‘Mayfly’ is an Future Care Planning education and communication skills programme that focuses on enhancing the skills and confidence of professionals delivering end of life care in all settings. It supports professionals to have “difficult conversations” around advance care planning. The ‘Mayfly’ programme has recently been developed to be delivered in an online format to ensure continued delivery during the pandemic and beyond.
