By 2040 the UK need for palliative care is likely to increase by 40%; however, by then the most likely place of death will be nursing homes. Consequently, this symposium asks what work can to done now to re-design palliative care to meet the needs of people over the next 20 years or so. This redesign includes how be develop services, build homes and other buildings, how we use technology, design hospice and hospital services.
This symposium will bring together researchers from different backgrounds to develop research methodology, to explore how architecture, design and technology can improve quality of life for people with palliative care needs. Several speakers across a range of disciplines have been confirmed (see attached programme).
The event is supported by a number of organisations, including: Engage Liverpool (University of Liverpool), the Centre for Humanities and Social Sciences of Health Medicine and Technology (CHSSoHMT), the Global Digital Exemplar Programme, Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) North West Clinical Research Network (CRN).
The event is free. A lunch will be provided. It will offer a wonderful opportunity for collaborative research and networking. ALL WELCOME!
