International event featuring leading science around the role of rehabilitation in their services

About the event

Book before Wednesday 15 August 2018 for the early bird price

This international event is an opportunity for individuals and organisations delivering palliative care to access leading science around the role of rehabilitation in their services.

Modern palliative care must embrace rehabilitation to address the growing burden of disability associated with our changing population. People are living with prolonged functional decline and dependency on others in the last years of life. If you are committed to providing the best care to enable people to live fully, this is an important event to attend.

  • What will I learn?

    The day will offer the following:

    • Cutting-edge knowledge from world leading researchers in rehabilitation and palliative care
    • Reviewing and re-visioning a central role for rehabilitation within palliative care
    • New ideas about clinical innovation, gained through robust service evaluations
    • A revised perspective about collaborative working with therapy and allied health professions.
  • Who is it for?

    • Anyone interested in thinking collaboratively about how to best support and provide rehabilitation within palliative care services, across all settings and with equitable access for all patients
    • Those who are curious about how rehabilitation can help realise potential despite progressive illness at the end of life
    • Anyone interested in thinking together about joint and collaborative working with therapy teams, to promote rehabilitation principles in all working practices, to benefit patients and families.
  • Speakers

    This joint conference between St Christopher’s Hospice and King’s College London, offers expert speakers including:

    • Prof Eduardo Bruera Medical Director, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, USA
    • Prof Derick Wade Consultant in Neurological Rehabilitation, Oxford Centre for Enablement, UK
    • Prof Christine Ritchie Professor in Clinical Translational Research and Aging, University of California San Francisco, USA

More about St Christopher's education

St Christopher’s Education Centre and VAT charges

At St Christopher's, a registered charity, it is important for us to maximise any surpluses to reinvest in the objectives of the charity.

Unfortunately, the manner in which we undertake our training currently means we are not able to invest as much of our surplus as possible, therefore from the 1 December 2017, St Christopher’s Education Centre will charge VAT at the standard rate on our training courses, the reason for this change in pricing is twofold:

i) We want to be able to reinvest any surpluses made from training back into all of our charitable objectives rather than only Education

ii) We want to be able to reclaim the VAT on costs relating to developing and running the training courses
