We are delighted to announce that the Open University Death and Dying Group Conference will be held on 21st March 2018 at The Open University, Milton Keynes from 09:30 – 16:00.
The theme of the conference is addressing the issues in end of life care and the ways in which the health, social care and academic community can and are mitigating the impact of these challenges. The conference will focus upon inequalities, tackling variations and addressing the practical issues in meeting the needs of individuals towards the end of their life. The conference will update delegates on the challenges of fulfilling a dying person’s needs within a care setting and focus on social action and peer mentoring projects within the community. There will be an opportunity for delegates to engage in roundtable activities with members of the Death and Dying Group about BBC2’s ‘Time to Live’. This programme followed the journey of twelve individuals through their diagnosis of a terminal illness and living and coping with dying.
