2016 Conference

 

 

Supporting Family Carers in Palliative Care:

Rhetoric or Reality?

We hosted our first ever conference in Milton-Keynes on Wednesday 2nd March 2016. This event focused on the exploration of The CSNAT Approach as a person-centred approach to supporting family carers in palliative and end-of-life care.

A wide range of professionals including healthcare practitioners, researchers, and policy makers attended. We were also fortunate to have a number of people come along to share their personal experiences of caring for someone close to them.

The presentations and posters displayed on the day are all available for download (see links below)
