It's time to talk about dying

18 May 2022
Keynote Theatre
If healthcare is to support the public 'from cradle to grave,' then the disparities in care for people approaching the end of life need to be addressed. Amendments to the Health and Care Bill will require commissioning of access to specialists in palliative care across England and Wales. This session will consider what the patterns of 'ordinary dying' involves, and how that process is disrupted if symptoms of the underlying illness are inadequately managed. To commission adequate services for their dying citizens, commissioners need to understand how dying happens, how it can be planned for, and the skills, knowledge and attitudes staff require in order to deliver a supportive service to dying people and their loved ones from advance care planning to End of Life care.
