Why access and equity in advanced care planning matters
Tuesday, 12 October 2021
This free online webinar will offer different perspectives on accessibility and advanced care plans (ACP). We will hear from professionals working at The Kirkwood (a hospice in Huddersfield, UK) who will share their experiences of integrating advanced care planning into their work with patients and families. The webinar will also feature a series of reflections from carers who have had direct experience of supporting someone living towards the end of life. Finally, findings from a University of Huddersfield research project about advanced care plans in hospices and care homes during the Covid 19 pandemic will be shared with attendees. Towards the end of the webinar, we will invite comments and questions from the audience for the speakers. The webinar is aimed at professionals involved in end-of-life care across a variety of contexts and settings, and it will also be of interest to individuals considering how to make plans for future care or who are supporting someone through this process. It will be hosted by the Palliative and End of Life Care Special Interest Group based in the School of Human and Health Sciences at the University of Huddersfield.
