End of Life Care Presentation
Death and dying are inevitable. Palliative and end of life care must be a priority.
The quality and accessibility of this care will affect all of us and it must be made consistently better for all of us. The needs of people of all ages who are living with dying, death and bereavement, their families, carers and communities must be addressed, taking into account their priorities, preferences and wishes.
We have arranged an evening for our members which will be an opportunity to discuss the challenges end of life care presents to us all.
The aim will be to share how end of life care at our Trust is delivered and the learning we are striving to achieve.
This will be approached through case study presentations and an opportunity to talk openly about the difficulties faced around the subject of:
- Recognising when patients are deteriorating
- Communicating effectively
- Involving those people who are important
- Providing a clear plan
This will be led by the Lead Nurse for End of Life Care.
All of our members are welcome to book, but places are limited so if you're unable to attend, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can offer your place to someone else.
