Why this conference?

The last 12 months have seen critical developments in end of life care. The Leadership Alliance for Care of Dying People has published Five Priorities for Care which are now being implemented. The government has set up an independent review into a “national choice offer” to improve people’s quality and experience of end of life care. The CQC is carrying out a thematic review for end of life care. There is a national focus on improving the quality of evidence and intelligence. NHS England has said that it will not be refreshing the End of Life Care Strategy but will be looking instead to identify new ambitions and actions for improvement. The Neuberger review into the Liverpool Care Pathway emphasised that we need “a national conversation about dying.”

It is against this background that we are holding our second national state-of-play conference for end of life care, bringing together key leaders, partners and organisations to consider the future and debate what a genuinely ambitious agenda for change should be. This will make a significant contribution towards generating a truly transformative national ambition for end of life care and enable participants to contribute to the national conversation about dying, explore the future and inform their own strategic priorities and plans.

At this conference, you will...

- Learn from national leaders in end of life care about strategic priorities and current progress
- Participate in specialist workshops on key initiatives in end of life care
- Contribute to and debate the national conversation about dying through an interactive panel session
- Learn about new approaches to innovation and how these can change public attitudes
- Influence and inform the development of new national ambitions to transform end of life care
- Have an opportunity to discuss topical issues and network with national experts and people with personal experience of end of life care
