Utilising outcome measures into palliative care conference

Ahead of our utilising outcome measures into palliative care conference at Clifford House later this month, Dr Sam Kyeremateng, Medical Director and Clinical Lead for Programme Development shares his thoughts and aspirations for the day.

“Following the overwhelming positive response to our implementing outcome measures into clinical practice conference in October, we are thrilled to be hosting a further conference in partnership with Hospice UK, the Cicely Saunders Institute at King's College London and the Wolfson Palliative Care Research Centre, University of Hull.” said Sam.

“Utilising outcome measures into palliative care will share the latest evidence supporting the benefits of incorporating patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) into clinical practices in both hospice and NHS settings, as well as sharing practical solutions and top tips to support teams with integrating them into their own areas.

Throughout the day we will be sharing our experiences of analysing the data collected and describing how the information gathered can be used and displayed to demonstrate the impact of services to commissioners and stakeholders. We will also be showcasing new and innovative tools and technologies that are currently being developed to support the delivery of high quality end of life care in the future.

As well as hearing our guest speakers experiences of utilising PROMs, interactive workshops will provide the opportunity for attendees to discuss key issues and challenges they are facing and to share their own solutions. Through everyone sharing their knowledge and experiences it is hoped that we can develop a community of practice that supports effective integration of PROMs into everyday practices.

We look forward welcoming all of our delegates to what promises to be an extremely insightful and thought-provoking conference very soon. Please do visit us again in early April when I will be sharing all the highlights and outcomes from the day.”
