Dying Matters Week Workshop

Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust and Saint Francis Hospice are working in partnership to provide a workshop focusing on Advance Care Planning. This event will be held during Dying Matters week - this year the theme is 'What Can You Do'.

What we 'thought we would do' would be to share our knowledge on Advance Care Planning with the Health Professionals we work alongside.

The workshop is on Wednesday 16th May at 1.30pm and will be repeated on Thursday 17th May, also at 1.30pm. Light refreshments will be available.

If you would like to have a stand at the event please contact Jan Scott or Andrea Prout on 01708 753319.

Please register for your free place.


What do we mean by Advance Care Planning?

‘Advance Care Planning’ (ACP) is the term used to describe the conversation between people, their families and carers and those looking after them about their future wishes and priorities for care.

ACP is key means of improving care for people nearing the end of life and of enabling better planning and provision of care, to help them live well and die well in the place and the manner of their choosing. It enables people to discuss and record their future health and care wishes and also to appoint someone as an advocate or surrogate, thus making the likelihood of these wishes being known and respected at the end of life. The main goal is to clarify peoples’ wishes, needs and preferences and deliver care to meet these needs.

‘Advance Care Planning is a process that supports adults at any age or stage of health in understanding and sharing their personal values, life goals, and preferences regarding future medical care. The goal of advance care planning is to help ensure that people receive medical care that is consistent with their values, goals and preferences during serious and chronic illness.’
