Eighth National Conference

Healthcare Conferences UK in association with Christopher Fincken, Independent Member UK Caldicott Guardian Council, (Former Chairman) are pleased to announce this eighth annual Virtual Conference which will focus on Information Sharing and Caldicott Principles in End of Life care. Following the success of our previous Caldicott Guardian National Conferences, and feedback from our regular Caldicott Training Masterclasses, this conference will focus on developing your role in improving communication and information sharing and implementing the Caldicott Principles at the end of life. The conference will also update delegates on the PRSB Palliative and End of Life Care Information Standard.

“At end of life, information sharing is especially crucial. We are particularly unwell and vulnerable and we need information to be shared amongst those caring for us without having to take that on and be the bearers of information between everyone involved in our care. We must ensure patients have the right information at the right time and that information is shared easily and seamlessly amongst the professionals and services involved in their care… effective information sharing truly can transform lives and transform care.”

Lucy Watts MBE Ambassador & Young Avenger Together for Short Lives People in Partnership Steering Group Member Hospice UK

“The PRSB’s Palliative and End of Life Care Information Standard helps ensure that people’s end-of-life wishes are consistently recorded and shared and can be accessed by a health or care professional when needed…As a consultant in palliative medicine, I see how this is critical in emergency situations, where sharing information quickly in a consistent way can make all the difference to a patient, their loved ones and carers at this emotionally heightened time. Being able to respond to their wishes in a timely and effective way helps them feel respected, listened to and confident.”

Dr Kath Lambert, Consultant in Palliative Medicine at Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust 2023
