Innovative Approaches to End-of-Life Care (King's Fund Conference))

The King's Fund is producing an conference on September 22, 2016 in London: "Innovative Approaches to End-of-Life Care."



This event will look at innovative approaches to palliative and end-of-life care. It will give you an overview of some of the national programs of work in this area and share lessons from good practice case studies in palliative care and local end-of-life care commissioning and delivery.



You'll learn about measures including shared electronic records, partnerships between hospitals, hospices and services delivered in the community, and advance care planning, and how these can help you deliver the national ambitions for how palliative and end-of-life care should be delivered locally.
