Transforming End of Life Care
20/02/2014Do you want to make a difference for people with an illness or condition which may limit or shorten their lives? Yes? Then we want to invite you to a workshop to hear your views.
The Transforming Your Palliative and End of Life Care Programme is hosting a workshop on Tuesday 4th March 1.30pm-4.30pm in Seagoe Parish Centre.
We want to involve people who have an illness which cannot be cured and those who care for them, including, family, carers, healthcare professionals and the wider community.
Angela McVeigh, co-chair of the programme Southern Locality Board and Director of Older People and Primary Care for the Southern Trust explains: “The Transforming Your Palliative and End of Life Care Programme, an initiative by Marie Curie, aims to enable people to have choice in their place of care when they are living with an illness which cannot be cured and may limit or shorten their life. Examples of these illnesses are advanced respiratory disease, cancer, chronic kidney disease, heart failure and dementia.
“The programme will be person-centred and look at how best to broaden palliative care and consider new ways of providing end of life care at home or as close to home as possible, as appropriate.
Angela adds: “We believe you have a valuable contribution to make and attending this workshop will give you the chance to generate new ideas that will inform the redesign of how care and support is provided to help improve end of life care for local people.”
