Nutrition and hydration: CPD

Getting it right every time - Nutrition and hydration care at the end of life

This resource has been developed for you by the RCN and is designed to offer you support in your delivery of appropriate end of life care alongside your existing training, with a particular focus on nutrition and hydration.

The resource is for any registered nurse, student nurse, health care assistant (HCA) or assistant practitioner working in any healthcare setting or specialism. The aim is to give you an understanding of your role when it comes to meeting the nutritional and hydration needs of people with life limiting illnesses. You can work through this resource at your own pace either all at once, or by one of the “bite sized” pieces of learning whenever it is convenient for you.
