The Government has published their “One-Year-On” response to the Review of Choice in End of Life Care, outlining the progress made and the steps that need to be taken in the coming year. There is a distinct focus on personalisation and patient empowerment, but much more needs to be done in this area: two-thirds of people want to die at home, yet almost 55% of people still die in a hospital, 40% of whom have no clinical need to be there.

Join this Westminster Briefing event for an up-to-date brief on the latest national policy changes for end of life care, and explore what you can expect moving forward. Learn how to promote personalisation and choice for your patients and hear national good practice from colleagues in the provision of end of life care.

Key Issues to be Addressed:

  • Update on the latest national policy changes for end of life care
  • End of life care in 2018: what can we expect moving forward?
