    Parallel session 6.2: Primary palliative care: working across boundaries

In this session Kay Green, Chair of the National Hospice at Home Association, will share perspectives on the numerous models of care in the home, and what the future could hold. Dr Lucy Martin has been very involved in a Macmillan-funded model to integrate community palliative and primary services, and will share the pitfalls and success factors.

    Parallel session 6.3: Collaboration – proactive approaches to shape change
    The objective of this session is to provide examples of proactive collaborations where hospices have engaged with partners to: • take up new funding opportunities • influence and shape the vision for end of life care • develop fresh approaches to old problems. We will hear about the opportunities and challenges of supporting people with Personal Health Budgets at end of life, and the focus they give to personalised care; how hospices can work together proactively to lead in shaping local approaches to end of life; and how a new cross sector partnership is helping healthcare professionals overcome fears about difficult conversations at end of life.
