Event Details

 

Research published by the University of Glasgow, supported by Marie Curie, found that three in ten people on a given day in Scottish hospitals will die within 12 months. One in ten will die on their current admission.

Similar research has now been carried out in Denmark and New Zealand.

This seminar will bring together the three lead researchers who carried out this work across the three countries. They will each present their findings drawing comparisons, as well as discussing and exploring reasons for differences between them, including possible policy approaches.

The Scottish Government has also been invited to present on how the findings can be used to improve palliative and end of life care in Scotland. The event will conclude with a Q&A session with the panel.

We have an exciting range of speakers lined up, including:

 

  • Professor David Clark, University of Glasgow
  • Lene Jarlbæk, Lene Jarlbæk researcher, Ph.D., a specialist in oncology and clinical pharmacology, REHPA - Knowledge Centre for Rehabilitation and Palliative      Care, Denmark
  • Professor Merryn Gott, University of Auckland
  • Scottish Government (TBC)
