Care of Dying Adults in the Last Days of Life: Improving Care and Ensuring Adherence to the NICE National Quality Standard
Through national updates, and practical case studies, the conference will focus on improving care of adults in the last days of life.
Sessions will focus on:
Putting personal experience first
Monitoring adherence against the national NICE standards in practice
Alignment of care with the preferences and needs of the dying person and those important to them
Predicting and recognising last days of life and managing uncertainty
Developing individual care plans and goals
Symptom control and hydration, and
Effective prescribing including anticipatory prescribing at the end of life
We are pleased to advise that our NACEL Support Team will be delivering an extended session on Learning from the National Audit of Care at the End of Life 2018, where we will be covering key findings, implementing the recommendations and looking forward to the second round of data collection.
The conference will also look forward to the New NICE Guideline on End of life care for adults: service delivery which is in consultation and due for publication in October 2019.
