End of Life Care Conference: Compassionate and personalised care
“Our commitment is that every person nearing the end of their life should receive attentive, high quality, compassionate care, so that their pain is eased, their spirits lifted and their wishes for their closing weeks, days and hours are respected.” – Department of Health
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. According to an Office of National Statistics survey of 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 End of Life 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. Learn how to improve the quality of end of life care, see how individual health budget and a more personalised approach and can put patients in control and understand how community based care can ease the pressure on hospitals.
