This national conference will look at improving care of the dying adults in the last days of life with a particular focus on care and support during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The Covid-19 outbreak currently being experienced around the world is unprecedented and requires everyone to work together to contribute to the health and well-being of populations as well as ensure that appropriate guidance and sharing of good practice occurs. This is essential in order to support the care of patients at the end of their lives or who are significantly unwell as the result of both Covid-19 or other possibly life-limiting illnesses.”
