Why this conference
This conference is an opportunity to explore the progress with measurement and collaborative commissioning of end of life care services. It will draw upon NCPC’s work along with that of the National Audit Office and NHS National End of Life Care Programme to discuss both policy and implementation in this challenging field. It will provide a forum to consider priorities from both benchmarking work and emerging practice. The conference is designed to support commissioners to develop their understanding of palliative and end of life care needs and commission accordingly, and for providers to reflect on how they can best develop their services in response to those needs. It will showcase practical examples where effective commissioning has led to more cost effective services.
