“There is huge variation in the quality of care that people receive at the end of their life.” Care Quality Commission 2017

This national conference will look at improving care of the dying adults in the last days of life and ensuring adherence to the national NICE quality standard in practice.

“We know the vast majority of people in this country receive very good care at the end of life, but this isn’t always the case…Our guidance will support doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals so that they can work together to ensure that people die with dignity, whenever possible in the place of their choosing and with their symptoms effectively controlled.” Professor Gillian Leng, deputy chief executive of NICE

Through national updates, and practical case studies the conference will focus on improving care of adults in the last days of life. Sessions will focus on putting personal experience first, monitoring adherence against the standards in practice, alignment of care with the preferences and needs of the dying person and those important to them, predicting and recognising last days of life and managing uncertainty, developing individual care plans and goals, symptom control and hydration and effective prescribing including anticipatory prescribing at the end of life.
