Public Sector Event
Improving End Of Life Care
Venue: Manchester Conference Centre
Date: 10 Dec 2014
Synopsis: Through expert sessions and practical case studies, this important and timely conference will focus on implementing the new priority areas, outcomes and guiding principles for care at the end of life.
New Priorities for Care launched as the new basis for caring for someone at the end of their life.
A new approach to caring for dying people based on the needs and wishes of the person and those close to them has been launched and welcomed by Care and Support Minister Norman Lamb.
It takes the form of five new Priorities for Care which succeed the Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP) as the new basis for caring for someone at the end of their life. The new approach focusses on giving compassionate care and is a move away from previous processes and protocols. It recognises that in many cases, enabling the individual to plan for death should start well before a person reaches the end of their life and should be an integral part of personalised and proactive care.
