“End of life care is a hospital-wide concern and leadership must be provided at board level and across directorates to achieve high standards.” CQC, 2 March 2017 

This conference focuses on improving end of life care for people in hospital. Through national updates and learning from the NHS Transform Programme, and case studies demonstrating improvement in practice the conference will support you to meet the six national ambitions for end of life care within hospital, and improve care and outcomes for patients and their families.

“End of life care services are a good example of the variation in quality that exists between hospitals. Over half of the services are rated good or outstanding, with the 7% rated as outstanding providing personalised care that met the needs of individuals. However, 4% were rated inadequate and 33% were rated requires improvement” Care Quality Commission 2 March 2017

“Currently almost half of all deaths (47%) take place in hospital (National End of Life Care Intelligence Network, 2015). Nearly 30% of all hospital beds are occupied by someone in their last year of life…The majority of deaths occur following a period of chronic illness such as respiratory disease, heart disease or cancer. Almost 500,000 people die each year in England, two thirds of whom are 75 years or older. With an ageing population, the number of deaths is set to increase by 17% between 2012 and 2030.” NHS England
