About this event

  • Date and time Wed 25 Jan 2023 from 8:00am to 12:00pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Medicine and Society, Digital Health

The purpose of this event is to explore how digital means can enable people to have a more satisfactory end of life experience. Join us for this virtual meeting to learn how this technology is being used, to see what future plans are in this area and to discuss how this can be used successfully to enable more people to die in the location of their choice and with the care around them that they need.

The meeting will be divided into two parts with the first session giving an overview of care and how trusts and commissioners are adapting care to the digital world. The second session will be from a user perspective and how the individual can exert more control of this process through Apps and other means during the end of life period and afterwards. 

This session will focus on end of life care in a digital world, where care can be enhanced through digital applications. The aim of the meeting is to provide examples of good practice in this area and to enable health staff to consider how they can apply this in their local work settings. This may be of particular interest to commissioners of services and clinicians working with older adults. 


Benefits of attending: 

  • Understand how end of life care can be delivered in a digital world  
  • Hear about examples of digital care across the UK and beyond and see what learning has been gleaned from this  
  • Consider some cultural aspects of end-of-life care and how digital means can address this
