Why this conference?
With the new Care Act 2014 due to be implemented in 2015, how will regulations and guidance support the implementation of the Act, and what do local authorities need to put in place to ensure the Act works in practice to support those at the end of life?
Social care and health care need to be co-ordinated (rather than “integrated”) to give people at the end of life the best possible death; yet we know that too often this isn’t the case. The two systems remain separated by funding, yet are expected to work together more closely than ever, within the challenge of limited resources. Join us to hear about how the two systems can do this.
This conference will...
Enable you to hear from services who are working together well locally to provide good care and support to people at the end of life; and consider the challenges of how things ought to work.
