About the course

In many ways the Department of Health’s End of Life Care Strategy (2008) was a ‘tipping point’. It highlighted the paucity of consistent high quality care at end of life across all settings and for all populations. This inequality added to the challenges of an ageing population, the promise of greater dependence and more complex needs for people approaching end of life has resulted in hospices exploring different and more creative ways of delivering “hospice” not just to the few but at scale. This conference will present new models of care delivery that are emerging in response to increased demand.
