Invitation to an event looking at your role in Commissioning person centred care for the last year of life

15 September 2015

More and more people are living with long term conditions – partly due to those acquired in adult life, partly because more babies and children with life-limiting conditions can now live into adulthood and mostly because we are all living longer. But ultimately we all die. This means that (care) the support we get as we approach the end of our life has to matter to everyone involved, in health care, social care and in the wider community.

End of life care provides particular challenges, not only because of the (special) individual and varied needs of many at the end of life but also because of the need to coordinate and integrate a wide range of services across different sectors.(But) The rewards for getting it right are huge. Personalised, integrated care at the end of life can transform that experience for the individual, their family, and the staff caring for them.
