Collaborating with Communities: Transforming End of Life Experiences Together
The end of life is over-medicalised and unequal. We won’t address this by continuing to work the same way we are doing – we need change.
Growing awareness of end of life inequalities and the role that communities do and can play in end of life support has led to an NHS Ambition being one which asks us to proactively work with communities. But on whose terms? Are we asking people to help out the health system for free, or can we achieve a greater change?
In it we will focus on ways in which we can understand community power and work in community settings to support people at end of life. We’ll also help think through how organisations can collaborate with people in local systems and across the death system to improve end of life experiences, and change end of life care for the better.
Over the course of a day, we’ll hear from community leaders, people running groundbreaking projects within the death system, and Lived Experiences Advocates telling us why change is needed and how it can happen.
Join us to start a conversation about place-based working to tackle inequalities, with vision to do more to change the end of life and the way we provide or shape services.
Join us for this conference if you are interested in exploring together
- how and why communities and people with lived experience have a leadership role to play,
- the value of collaboration and community power, and
- how you might more equitably work with communities
A full programme of the day will follow soon.
