The end of our story is an important part of our story. As health services move to a person centered approach and public sector budgets continue to be squeezed it is important that we how we can work together to deliver this, not just as health and care professionals but looking at the practical, social and spiritual side of people’s needs.
We’ll hear from key speakers and collaborate using the tried and tested approach of workshops and discussion and by using new online collaboration tools and social media to ensure that we generate a genuinely useful set of recommendations for policy and practice.
We will be to share and discuss best practice and how we can make a real difference as well as consider how policy can be influenced. We will be using a collaborative approach and have limited places to ensure that we are able to co-create a strong outcome.
Speakers will include
Baroness Sally Greengross, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Aging
Usha Grieve, Director of Partnerships and Information. Compassion in Dying
Carol Munt, Co-Chair, NHS Thames Valley Patient Experience Operation Group
Simon Sandberg, Director Ergo Consulting
Clare Metcalf, Founder of Huunuu
