Palliative Care Conference: Compassionate and personalised care
The UK leads the world in end of life care. But despite these high standards, many patients are still denied a choice about the treatment they receive in their final weeks. When the Office for National Statistics surveyed the relatives of patients who died in hospital, 37% believed their loved ones were not given enough choice about their end of life care.
A lack of suitable alternatives for the terminally ill means that more people than ever are dying in hospital, costing the NHS an average of £4,500 per person. An ageing population with multiple complex care needs looks set to put even great pressure on a system that is already under strain. In response to these trends, the Government’s “Commitment to End of Life Care” sets out six measures to allow patients to draw up their own care plan and make informed choices.
Join us for the Palliative Care Conference where expert speakers from across the health and social care sectors will discuss how we can deliver services that are both compassionate and high quality.
