ECLiHP Conference: 'Seeing safety through a different lens'

Friday 22 June 2018, Hilton Leeds City

Education and Workforce Pressures

This conference was hosted by the Executive Clinical Leads in Hospice and Palliative Care, (ECLiHP), a Hospice UK network. 

How does a ‘Just Restorative Culture’ help us to practise safely whilst driving development in times of pressure? Each of our sessions considered how safety is integral to what we do but may need to look different. Our key note presenter, Trevor Dale, is a leading expert in the field and examined how to maintain confidence and safety in a world of human fallibility.

This event aimed to

  • explore what ‘Just Restorative Culture’ was preferred and how adopting it could build safety in the workplace
  • hear from hospice colleagues who have introduced change in response to a safety breach or alert
  • discuss palliative sedation and what we are learning about it’s impact on the family and staff, in particular.
  • focus on how a quality improvement approach is integral to building a 'positive' safety culture.


  • Trevor Dale MRCPS(Glas) FRAeS, Co-Founder and Managing Director, Atrainability
  • Professor Jane Seymour, Professor of Palliative and End-of-Life Care, Sheffield University
  • Claire Henry MBE, Director of Improvement and Transformation, Hospice UK
  • Antonia Dixey, CEO, The Participation People
