Event description

Description

As part of our Let's Talk Series, this event will discuss "The Challenges of Progressive Illness" - with Dr Caroline Bruckner-Holt.

"Caroline Bruckner-Holt has been a Consultant in Palliative Medicine at UHNM for almost 2 years and is the recently appointed Medical Director at Katharine House Hospice in Stafford. Alongside her specialist interest in advanced pain and symptom management in terminal disease, Caroline is keen to improve the provision of palliative care to all people in their last year of life in Staffordshire, by helping to shape and design services that meet the needs of the growing number of people with complex multi-morbidity.

The talk will focus on the significant challenges to health and social care from the changing health needs of the population and the expected rise in deaths in the coming 25 years. Caroline will talk about what the current evidence reveals to us about the needs of people and their families in the last year of life, what models of care provide meaningful benefit (as well as those that don't) and what changes are urgently needed to improve palliative and end of life care to patients suffering with any condition.

A light supper will be available.
