  • Location: London, W1G 0AE
  • Date: 12 May 2017
  • Address: Royal Society of Medicine, 1 Wimpole Street

This conference celebrates 50 years of the hospice movement, whilst simultaneously recognizing that society, care services, the public and professionals will all need to work quite differently to ensure that people die well in the future.

The speakers will bring radical ideas to our thinking, demanding a balance of human, digital and community solutions to make the difference. The conference is jointly organised by St Christopher's, Hospice UK and the Royal Society of Medicine.

The conference aims to:

  • Encourage creative and innovative approaches to today’s palliative challenges – to re-ignite the pioneering ethos of the hospice movement
  • Introduce the concept of ‘design thinking’ to health care issues – the day will be encouraging people how to think differently, rather than about what to do
  • Introduce examples from outside palliative care to stimulate new collaborative and imaginative ways of working 

For information about the conference you can read the recent blog from Dr Ros Taylor M.B.E, Clinical Director at Hospice UK, or download the conference flyer.
