November 8, 2017

52 delegates attended the meeting held in the Marie Curie Palliative Care Institute. The event brought together national and international leaders in the Serious Illness Care Programme to share the exciting results from the UK Phase One Pilot. It was also an opportunity to look to the future and share the plans for the next steps of the Programme.  


 Alison Coackley, Clinical Lead for the Programme said: “This meeting was a wonderful opportunity to share the results from the Phase One pilot  and discuss plans  to build on the evidence base and extend implementation to other sites and care settings across the UK. It was great to welcome our colleagues from Boston in the US to share their invaluable expertise and knowledge as we go forward into the next phase in this Programme.  his pilot demonstrates that when clinicians  and patients talk together about the things that matter most, we can then make sure patients get the care they really want  and focus on the things that are important to them.”
