Improving End of Life Care for people with Cardiovascular Disease & Heart Failure

Friday 31 Jan 2020

De Vere West One Conference Centre, London

Follow the conference on Twitter #CardioEoL

This conference focuses on improving end of life care for people with Cardiovascular Disease and Heart Failure through a person centred approach. Through national updates and practical case studies the conference aims to support you to meet the end of life care needs for people with heart disease.

The conference will also discuss starting difficult conversations: talking to people with heart failure about end of life care & advance care planning, and understanding progression of Heart Failure: Predicting and recognising last days of life and managing uncertainty.    

“Heart and circulatory diseases cause more than a quarter of all deaths in the UK, that’s nearly 170,000 deaths each year – an average of 460 deaths each day or one every three minutes in the UK.”

British Heart Foundation

“There is extensive evidence that the distress faced by those living and dying with advanced heart failure is similar, and in many cases more severe, than those dying of cancer. Yet very few patients are referred for palliative or hospice support by their primary care or hospital cardiology teams.”
