End of Life Care for All (e-ELCA)

End of Life Care for All (e-ELCA) is an e-learning programme developed for the NHS West Midlands in 2012 by experts commissioned by the National End of Life Programme and the Association for Palliative Medicine. 

The course is intended to be used as part of a "blended" approach - combining e-learning with face-to-face time and discussion.

It was created to address the workforce issues identified in the End of Life Care Strategy and West Midlands Clinical Pathway Group report in 2008.

With the annual number of deaths expected to rise by 17 per cent between 2012 and 2030, many key workers - from GPs and hospital doctors to ambulance workers, pharmacists, care home and domiciliary workers - report that they don't have the skills or confidence to deal effectively with people and families approaching the end of life.
