What is CLiP?

A free, flexible learning series in palliative care supplied in a partnership between St Oswald’s Hospice and Hospice UK (adults) and Together For Short Lives (children).

CLiP is a case-based programme of self-learning workshops that take about 15mins - ideal for busy healthcare professionals.

There are two series:
- CLiP for adults
- CLiP4Kids for children and young people (currently in preparation)


  • Workshops are assigned a learning level (Introductory, Intermediate, Advanced) to give an indication of how much prior experience or knowledge is required for that workshop. Each learning level building on previous levels.
  • There is a further activity and references in each workshop.
  • Learning materials are flexible enough to be used by tutors in small group learning and can be used in lecture settings.
  • The ability for learners to complete an online MCQ and print off completion certificates if a required level is achieved, useful for portfolios and revalidation.
  • The adult series contains a choice of nearly 70 workshops arranged in eleven modules.
  • The children’s series will contain a similar number of workshops and modules.

How to use CLiP: 


Since each workshop is self-contained they can be used by individuals as an introduction to a new subject or as an update or reminder of a subject.


Small group setting

Tutorials/worksheets can be used by tutors in different ways:

-       preparation prior to a presentation;

-       the main component of a workshop (this will take 20-30 minutes depending on the level of interaction);

-       an illustration of an issue to stimulate discussion;

-       a different format for variety in a longer presentation or workshop;

-       handouts for "further reading".


Lecture theatre setting

The CLIP worksheets have been used with groups of 20, and on occasions with up to 100 with the following observations:

-       There is inevitably less interaction.

-       Most discussion comes from a few individuals, but most use the worksheets.

-       Even limited discussion can be enjoyed by other learners .

-       All those present need copies of the worksheet which double as handouts.

-       The worksheets should be used between other presentation methods for variety.
