    Parallel sessions 4 - 4.3 Embracing ageing: innovation and reality
    This session provided an exploration of frailty and co-morbidity, key challenges for palliative teams, and how closer working with geriatric services will be vital in the future. The palliative case-load is getting older and more frail and new models of care are critical. It also considered two concepts of what a care home can offer. These include: • the concept and vision for the ‘teaching care home’ and the potential impact on hospices in the locality • the global background and potential of intergenerational projects, such as the model at Nightingale House Care Home in South London, together with current outcomes and future possibilities. Is there, for example, learning for hospices from intergenerational working?

The speakers reflected on a range of questions, including why the decision was taken to commission Project ECHO, how a hospice can justify running ECHOs which aren’t primarily about palliative care service, and what funding model has been adopted to secure its ongoing use.

    Parallel sessions 3 - 3.1 Towards a UK-wide understanding of hospice care – the opportunity in our data
    Hospices currently sit on huge amounts of data in patient recording systems. Could we come together as a sector to pool that data to create a data hub that ensures hospices have access to high quality, relevant data to support evidence-based decision-making, make strong business cases, undertake meaningful benchmarking, tackle inequalities in access to care and plan for the future?
