Getting our Priorities Right: Care for the Dying Person

Categories: Community Engagement.

Any practitioner involved in offering care to adults at the end of life, whether in the person’s usual place of residence (home or care home) or in a hospital/hospice setting.

Caring for a person at the end of their life is a privilege, and we only have one chance to get it right. This study day will help practitioners to understand the guidance issued by the Leadership Alliance for Care of Dying People in response to the independent review of the Liverpool Care Pathway. These Priorities for Care provide a new focus for caring for a person at the end of life and all providers of such care will need to demonstrate how they are achieving them (for example during CQC inspections). The guidance will be considered in a logical and interactive way with input from expert practitioners whilst allowing time to learn from each other.
