Rehabilitation in Palliative Care: Contemporary Opportunities

Join us on 1 July

On 1 July, we’re hosting what promises to be the biggest and best rehabilitative palliative care conference we’ve ever staged. With some of the foremost practitioners and thinkers in the field and the launch of an updated model of care, Rehabilitation in palliative care: contemporary opportunities, on 1 July, is a must attend for everyone committed to leading a truly holistic model of palliative care.

This in-person conference at St Christopher’s CARE is also an opportunity for Allied Health Professionals, service providers and clinical leads to shape the future of this forward thinking approach to care for people at the end of life.

“We’re looking to draw together delegates from a range of disciplines working for organisations dedicated to making palliative rehabilitation central to their current and future service.

Helena Talbot-Rice, Rehabilitation and Wellbeing Consultant Lead, St Christopher’s

Helena adds “I hope delegates leave the conference with a renewed energy and excitement. It’s about bringing all the different skills together to create an attitude of respect for a person to make their own choices about how they live their final years and months – focusing on making what’s possible a reality and helping them live life to the full.”

Speakers including Rebecca Tiberini, Strategy and Integration Director, St Michael’s Hospice and Matthew Maddocks, Joanne Bayly and Lucy Fettes, all of Cicely Saunders Institute of Palliative Care, Policy and Rehabilitation will update delegates with a concise summary of the latest developments and research and invite them to think about they can embed the rehabilitation ethos into service delivery.

We’ll also be launching an updated model to support the 2015 publication of Rehabilitative Palliative Care: Enabling People to Live Actively Until They Die – the ground-breaking model originally published by St Christopher’s Chief Executive, Heather Richardson and Rebecca Tiberini, in 2015. This new edition has been modernised and adapted to acknowledge the needs of the growing elderly frail population and the role rehabilitation can play in their care.
