Improving palliative care for people with advancing heart failure
Opportunities for integration and collaboration
This one-day conference offers new insights about how to advance and improve care for people living and dying with advancing heart failure.
It draws heavily on learning generated in a recent programme of innovation and service development in South-East London, funded by the Burdett Trust for Nursing and led by St Christopher’s in partnership with professional colleagues in hospital and the community. Its content and focus has been shaped by conversations and engagement with advocates of lived experience.
By attending this conference participants can expect:
- New insights regarding what is most important to people living with a diagnosis of advancing heart failure, including families and carers
- An introduction to a model of collaboration and integration of services and professional effort, essential to enabling people living with heart failure to die well
- New awareness regarding the opportunities to improve quality of life for people facing a diagnosis of advancing heart failure through shared efforts across specialties, services and teams
- Information regarding areas of service innovation that increase the opportunities for home-based care for people living with advancing heart failure
- Opportunities for nurses to increase their role and contribution to heart failure services in the future
- Palliative care teams
- Heart failure teams
- Clinicians working in either specialty
- Primary care colleagues
- Clinicians working in complex care or rapid response teams
- Clinicians working in urgent care
