Conference on providing care for dying adults takes place in new year

14 December 2017

A conference taking place next month organised by Healthcare Conferences UK will look at improving the care of dying adults in the last days of life and ensuring adherence to the national NICE quality standard in practice.

Sessions will focus on putting personal experience first, alignment of care with the preferences and needs of the dying person and those important to them, predicting and recognising the last days of life and managing uncertainty, and effective prescribing including anticipatory prescribing at the end of life.

Speakers will include Tony Bonser, Former chair of the People in Partnership group and member of the Dying Matters Forum, and Professor Sam H Ahmedzai, Specialist Committee Member of Care of Dying Adults in the last days of life Quality Standard.

Professor Gillian Leng, deputy chief executive of NICE said:

“We know the vast majority of people in this country receive very good care at the end of life, but this is not always the case…Our guidance will support doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals so that they can work together to ensure that people die with dignity, whenever possible in the place of their choosing and with their symptoms effectively controlled.”

The conference takes place on 18 January in London. For more information visit Care of Dying Adults in the last days of life
