ALL 2016 DATES FROM APRIL 2016
End of Life Care (EOLC): Embedding excellent care in the last days and weeks of life into routine practice in all settings
The EOLC team at UCLPartners has now established a London-wide Acute hospitals End of Life Care Community of Practice (see more about the project below). Following a string of successful meetings since the first on 12 November 2015, we have now scheduled all further dates for 2016 as below. You can register for all of these events NOW!
The aim of the Community of Practice is to work together and within individual trusts, using shared resources and measures, to make excellent EOLC everyone’s business. This will be done through equipping generic staff to deliver better care, having a demonstrable positive impact on patient care and increasing strategic engagement.
The meetings will continue to be held face to face at UCL Partners approximately every three months. The themes of the upcoming meetings for 2016 are as follows;
6 December Bereavement
NB: The webinar previously scheduled for 10 November will no longer take place

Since September 2015 the End of Life Care (EOLC) team at UCLPartners have been working hard to produce educational material that can be used to train generic staff in the care of patients and those important to them in the last days of life. This is in the light of ‘Once Chance to get it Right’, changes in the law regarding discussions and decision making related to DNACPR, and CQC inspections of EOLC.
The project, funded by Health Education England North Central East London team (HE NCEL), includes a 17 minute film and educational material which can be used alone or in conjunction with the film. The material has been demonstrated in Train the Trainer sessions which have gained lots of positive feedback so far, and the Community of Practice have set regular meetings to encourage / develop continuous support and improvements.
