Sharing best practice
We are committed to ensuring children and families receive the best possible care and support throughout the palliative care journey.
As such we are always willing to share policies and practice where appropriate and to contribute to work groups, committees and initiatives across the West Midlands. Nationally
We also regularly contribute to regional and national conferences and to publications. Staff can also occasionally act as a 'guest speaker' to talk about Acorns services or broader palliative care issues.
We also support student placements for students studying for relevant professional qualifications. Nursing, physiotherapy and social work placements are offered on a regular basis in liaison with local education providers. There is also scope for other professionals such as art therapists to undertake placements if we are able to meet the supervision requirements.
