      Palliative & End of Life Care: Improving Provision to meet Increasing Demand

      Life expectancy has increased dramatically over recent years and it is expected to continue, as futuristic medical advancements are applied. Although the government’s goal is to improve healthy life expectancy by at least 5 years by 2035, the reality is that many people, living extended lives, do not live with good health. The inevitability of death has been delayed and we are more likely to die slowly over a protracted period of time. During this prolonged time frame, the demand for palliative and ultimately end of life care will increase, but can current and future provision meet these needs? The Palliative & End of Life Care: Improving Provision to meet Increasing Demand conference will bring together those who are dedicated to caring for people with life limiting conditions and those nearing the end of their lives. The event will provide a platform for delegates to examine: The current status of care demand and how this will be affected by increasing longevity How service provision will need to adapt to provide the necessary care required? The initiatives, innovations and programme improvements that can provide personalised, compassionate care  Join us for a day of insightful and informative sessions, delivered by expert speakers, plus the opportunity to network with like minded peers and fellow professionals.
