Hosted by Fundación Cudeca, Spain's longest-established centre for hospice care, Summer School is a three-day programme of workshops for prospective, new, and established members of the Collaborative.  

The main Summer School programme addresses the concept of 'Best Care for the Dying Person' through a series of plenaries and workshops designed to provide a thorough grounding in the 10/40 Model and the Quality Improvement Framework, and including topical issues such as digital training models and implementing care plans into Electronic Medical Records.  Interested individuals can also engage in project workshops to drive forward major projects, including the Facilitator Network, Cui-DAR, the Serious Illness Conversations Programme, and the international Marie Curie PhD Programme.
