Enhancing Paediatric Palliative Care
This one day networking conference will focus on working collaboratively to improve palliative and end of life care for neonatal, paediatric and adolescent patients and their families. With case study presentations about building Advanced Care Plans (ACPs), exploring the ethical boundaries of palliative care, improving symptom control and bridging the gap between paediatric and adult care, you will leave this NHS conference with the knowledge and motivation to enhance palliative care in your developing clinical network.
Attend this interactive networking forum and delve into case study presentations, share best practice advice and discuss the solutions for your common challenges for paediatric palliative care. You will leave the day with a clear view of how palliative care works across the country and the changes you can make to improve joined-up working.
