Improving End of Life Care for People with Cardiovascular Disease & Heart Failure
Wednesday 7th July (virtual conference)
Through national updates and practical case studies this conference focuses on improving end of life care for people with Cardiovascular Disease and Heart Failure through a person centred approach. Patients with cardiovascular conditions, including Heart Failure have been disproportionately impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. The conference will reflect on how we can improve care for people at the end of life, embed high quality supportive care pathways, improve communication about end of life care & advance care planning, and understand progression of Heart Failure: predicting and recognising last days of life and managing uncertainty. The conference will also discuss best practice in symptom control.
