The Centre for Education and Research team is delighted to announce the names of students graduating from the degree and masters level programmes that are run by the Hospice in partnership with Queen Margaret University.

The students graduating are:

Graduate Certificate in Palliative Care:

  • Lea Lanosga
  • Carol-Ann Smith
  • Dorothy Adams
  • Gayle Forsyth
  • Sheila Skelly

BSc in Professional Practice:

  • Lesley-Anne Walsh

MSc in Palliative Care:

  • Fiona Reid
  • Lesley Smith

Postgraduate Diploma in Palliative Care:

  • Sheila Shaw.

The programmes run by the Hospice enable students to study and examine pain and symptom management, communication skills and the psycho-social aspects of palliative and end of life care. This study is part time and is completed alongside the student’s clinical role, which for those about to graduate is that of registered nurse and one physiotherapist.

Janice Logan, one of the lecturers at the Hospice, said: “Learning in this way enables personal growth and helps the students to be confident in the contribution they make to delivering and advancing palliative and end of life care practice. This students in this year’s group come from various clinical roles and areas in community, hospitals and hospices throughout Scotland and northern England.

“On behalf of all the staff at the Hospice I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate each student on their success and wish them well as they celebrate with their family and friends at the graduation ceremony.”

The Hospice runs a range of educational courses for people studying or working in all areas of health and social care. Find out more about our courses here.
