PACE Steps to Success Programme

Steps towards achieving high quality palliative care in your care home

The PACE Steps to Success Programme is an educational and development initiative for staff designed to improve palliative care in care and nursing homes. It aims to develop an understanding what the PACE Steps to Success Programme is and how you can use it to improve the care you provide.

The PACE Steps to Success Programme was developed and tested as part of an international study (2014-2019), funded by the European Commission 7th Framework Programme, which aimed to improve palliative care for older people in care homes.

The information pack, and associated tools, have been prepared for care home managers and facilitators. The PACE Steps to Success Programme provides you with information and resources to help optimise quality of life for all residents and to support their families. It is available in a number of languages and is supported by three resource videos.

The PACE Steps to Success Programme is also used as part of the “Improving palliative care in care homes” Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). This is a free online course which is suitable for staff working in palliative care in care homes, as well as others with an interest in palliative care.
