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.
