Calendars: UK.

Bookings are now open for Scotland’s premiere event for anyone involved in the care and support of people reaching the end of life.

The quest to enable people to live well with serious illness and to die as they would wish is being reshaped by social, demographic and financial change. This conference will engage delegates in considering these changes and explore ways in which as organisations and individuals we might respond.

Topics at the conference will include:

  • Understanding and thinking strategically about the coming decade of disruptive change in palliative and end of life care
  • Using design-thinking and prototyping to innovate and improve care
  • Realistic Medicine and palliative care – interactive case-based discussion
  • Assessing and meeting the needs of carers
  • Supporting staff wellbeing through organisational change and self-care
  • Rapid-fire showcasing of innovations from across Scotland

Featuring a mix of high quality speakers, extensive poster display, Arts Space and delegate interaction the event will provide delegates with:

  • an opportunity for learning relevant to practice and workplace
  • a chance to network, to share information and good practice
  • challenging perspectives and energising inspiration
