Improving End of Life Care for People with Dementia

This Conference is now Closed

Follow the conference on Twitter #EndofLifeDementia

This conference focuses on improving end of life care for people with Dementia. Dementia is now the leading cause of death in England and Wales. In England it is estimated that around 676,000 people have dementia. In the whole of the UK, the number of people with dementia is estimated at 850,000. It is therefore essential that we focus on improving end of life care for Dementia. The conference will demonstrate, through national updates and practical case studies how you can improve end of life care for people with dementia in your service. This event will update delegates on the July 2019 National Quality Standard for Dementia and implications for end of life care. 

“One in three of us will die with dementia. It is the commonest cause of death in the UK. By 2040, 220,000 people will die with dementia each year. Distressing symptoms like pain and agitation are common. Policymakers and managers lack solutions to improve delivery of holistic person-centred care and information to plan future services. Access to good care for people with dementia towards end of life is highly unequal.” The EMBED-Care Programme 2019

“Research shows care for people living with dementia is not always underpinned by a palliative approach” The EMBED-Care Programme 2019

This conference will enable you to:

  • Network with colleagues who are working to improve end of life care for people with dementia
  • Learn from the lived experience of a person with dementia, and a carer of someone with dementia at the end life 
  • Learn from outstanding practice in delivering a palliative care approach to people with dementia at the end of life 
  • Reflect on national developments and learning including the July 2019 NICE Quality Standard for Dementia

  • Learn from case studies of best practice in hospitals, care homes and the community 
  • Identify key strategies for predicting and recognising last days of life and managing uncertainty  
  • Self assess and reflect on your own practice
  • Gain CPD accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence
