Summer School Dinner

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 Foundation Course for new and prospective members provides an overview of the Collaborative's background and its project portfolio, and gives a thorough grounding in the rationale and requirements of the 10/40 Model.  Existing members, meanwhile, will be engaged in project workshops to drive forward major projects, including the Facilitator Network, Cui-DAR, the Serious Illness Conversations Programme, and the volunteer coordination element of the iLIVE project.
