Future Transitions in Palliative Care – Online Discussions from the Opening Event

Held at the Lighthouse, this first seminar in the series focused on understanding the current research, policy and practice landscape of palliative care.  This programme argues that there is a need to focus on positive and preferable destinations of care where the ethos and values of services provide a seamless transition for people with life limiting conditions, regardless of life stage.

Discussions on the day took into account the range of perspectives, from family and volunteers to academics and front-line practitioners.  If you missed the day, or just want to revisit some of the most prominent discussions, the full online discussions are available here.
