National specialist end of life care conference puts us on national agenda

We are delighted to announce that we are to host a one day national conference for specialists in end of life care.

Utilising Outcome Measures in Palliative Care will be held at Clifford House, our new facility for anyone affected by an illness that has no cure, on March 26.

The free one day conference is aimed specifically at commissioners and providers of specialist palliative and end of life care in acute hospital, community, NHS and hospice settings.

It has been developed by Hospice UK in association with St Luke’s, Hull York Medical School, The Outcome Assessment and Complexity Collaborative and Kings College London.

“The conference 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 clinical practice,” said Dr Sam Kyeremateng, our Medical Director and Clinical Lead for Programme Development.

“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.”
