End of Life Lead Nurse for Community Services, Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust
Claire provides expert advice, support and education relating to end of life care, and she leads and contributes to new initiatives. In April 2020, care homes restricted access and routine visits from healthcare professionals to protect their residents and staff. This led to less support in identifying when a resident was nearing end of life, and what the normal dying process was. Claire wrote and delivered sessions for the staff in identifying common signs that someone is approaching end of life, and how they can effectively care for that person and identify when symptoms may require escalation for management.
