End of life and palliative care policy catalysis workshop

10.00, Thursday 30 January 2020

On 30 January 2020, the Academy is hosting a workshop to explore and define the policy priorities for end of life and palliative care, in view of of catalysing future policy activity by partners across the sector.

This meeting will draw together key stakeholders, including representatives from policy, service delivery, clinicians, academia, and community and patient groups, among others, to build upon the findings of the Academy’s public engagement projectThe Departure Lounge’, and the discussions at our policy landscape workshop earlier this year.

The workshop will be chaired by Professor Dame Jessica Corner FMedSci and will aim to:

  • Discuss the findings of ‘The Departure Lounge’ public engagement exercise, alongside the themes identified at the policy landscape workshop – including fragmentation, public engagement, and research priorities – and their wider implications.
  • Define the immediate priorities and policy gaps within end-of-life and palliative care.
  • Explore and identify deliverable solutions, taking into account existing end-of-life care initiatives and how these might be developed to address current gaps.

More information on and a report of our policy landscape workshop can be found on our dedicated policy page.
