  • Overview

The Palliative & End of Life Care conference will help you develop a greater understanding of how end of life care is going to be delivered in England over the next five years.

The programme will feature an overview of the latest policy and guidance as well as further discussion around implementation and plans for the future. This will be supplemented by practical sessions which are designed to be transferable, encouraging adoption across different teams and organisations.

At Open Forum Events we are incredibly proud to have developed a reputation for 'truly inspirational' health and social care conferences. Our delegates leave our conferences with 'new ideas and approaches they can actually apply' within their own organisations. Join us at September's Palliative & End of Life Care event to hear the latest on the five year vision for end of life care, the new national clinical guidelines and examples of best practice from leading care providers across England. Delegates will have the opportunity to question and debate the very latest policies, projects and emerging models of care, as well as sharing personal stories and experiences with conference and contribute to wider thinking about end of life care.
