The last year has seen many developments for end of life care provision, including new Government commitments and the updated guidance from NHS England. So what do these reports, reviews and strategies mean for your service, patients and families?

With a view to building on the progress made in end of life care, now is the time to re-evaluate the service you offer and gain practical guidance on providing integrated, compassionate care in all settings.

Key Issues to be Addressed Include:

  • Understanding the national policy landscape for end of life care
  • Meeting the Government’s ambitions for end of life care in your provision
  • Resourcing community care & reducing hospital admissions
  • Effective use of the Electronic Palliative Care Co-ordination System
  • How best to deliver a coordinated Personalised Care Plan
  • Commissioning end of life care for the greatest impact
  • Strengthening ways of learning & sharing best practice
  • Coordination between agencies & integrating care in the community

The Event:

The morning session will examine the next steps your service should take to improve the end of life care care it provides to patients in a coordinated, personalised and sustainable way.

The afternoon session will focus on examples of good practice of coordinated working, communication with patients and integrating services. The session will be highly interactive and provide with you practical guidance to take back and implement in your setting.

Morning refreshments will be served upon arrival with a networking lunch to follow. Any special needs or dietary requirements should be notified to us upon booking.

Who Should Attend?

Delegates will be drawn from, but not limited to: palliative care teams, hospices, care homes, community nurses, GPs, primary and acute care providers, clinical commissioners, local government commissioners, adult social care managers, patient groups and anyone interested in providing compassionate end of life care.

Background Quote

“We cannot defeat death. However, we can change the way we talk about dying, death and bereavement and prepare, plan, care and support those who are dying and the people who are close to them. We must strengthen and improve our ability to provide care whatever the circumstances of our dying."
