This conference will highlight relevant research into hospice care and support the translation of research findings into practice.

This year, we are focusing on the future of hospice care in the UK, exploring the current research in hospice service provision and how health care professionals think that hospice could be best used to match this. What might hospices look like in 20 years’ time?  

Join us to:

  • Explore current research in hospice service provision with an emphasis on alternatives to the traditional inpatient unit 
  • Review how health care professionals think hospices can be best used? 
  • Review dementia representation – is a hospice the correct setting for thitype of patient, or could we take the model of hospice care to their homes and care homes?
  • Know about the current research taking place that investigates hospice service provision beyond the hospice inpatient unit 
  • Demonstrate knowledge of how non-cancer diseases might require different models of care, and how hospice care could be tailored to meet those needs 
  • Begin to describe a vision of what hospice care may look like in 20 years’ time
