Annual, flagship conference exploring how technology is changing end of life planning and remembering the deceased.

About this event

We are delighted to announce that the Digital Legacy Conference 2021 will take place on the 5th October 2021. This year’s annual conference will once again feature as part of the European Association of Palliative Care’s World Congress.  The theme of the Digital Legacy Conference 2021 is ‘PalliCovid & Exploring New Dimensions’.  

The world we knew has changed. COVID-19 has unleashed chaos and the new normal is yet to be defined. The importance that communication technologies have had on our lives and the ways in which people think about death, say their goodbyes and remember their loved ones is changing.

“I tell you: one must still have chaos in oneself to give birth to a dancing star. I tell you: you still have chaos in yourselves.” - Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

Despite the chaos, moving and memorable moments have taken place. Compassionate, person- centred care by professionals, final goodbyes being said through mobile phones and care home residents being reunited with their loved ones following months of social distancing measures. Palliative care, healthcare and social care professionals have developed new, online communication skills, innovations have launched and new ways of working adopted.

The Digital Legacy Conference 2021 will examine how COVID-19 has changed and accelerated society’s attitudes around end-of-life planning, death and bereavement. It will review the impact of COVID-19 on Palliative Care (#PalliCovid), whilst ‘exploring new dimensions’ in the online and digital space. An array of international speakers will share their experiences, discuss research, highlight new ways of working and examine areas of best practice. 

Following a series of conferences in London, New York and Berlin, they  will be running this year’s Digital Legacy Conference online. The event will be streamed live from Michael Sobell Hospice (Mount Vernon Hospital, NW Greater London). Live streams from international contributors and pre-recorded contributions from across the globe will also feature.
