  • Overview

Open Forum Events is pleased to introduce the Palliative and End of Life Care 2022 conference which is the fifth in a series of impactful events highlighting the issues surrounding palliative and end of life care. This event will provide the opportunity to bring together those affected by and caring for people nearing the end of their lives to discuss a crucially important subject which too often lacks the attention and priority it deserves.

The event will feature a highly informative agenda, presenting speakers who are experts in their field, plus examples of best practice which delegates may feel appropriate to adopt into their own provision arrangements. We will hear about the challenges to be overcome, countered by examples of positive outcomes.  Delegates will have the opportunity to question, discuss and debate the very latest policies, projects and emerging models of care, as well as share their own stories and experiences with the conference and contribute to the wider thinking about the future of palliative and end of life care.

This is what some of the delegates had to say about the previous conference:

‘All (speakers) were wonderful’                'Brilliant'
‘All speakers incredibly passionate about palliative care.’
‘The event has been so inspiring’                   'Incredibly thought provoking'
'Excellent content and very well organised'

Open Forum Events offers delegates an insightful conference experience, sharing perspectives from across the sector through plenary addresses, interactive sessions, and networking opportunities.

The CPD accredited Palliative and End of Life Care 2022 conference aims to not only further educate, but to facilitate a discussion forum of opinion and experience, to help shape future support and seek out potential solutions.
