RCN2020 event: What use are human rights in end of life care?

05 Oct 2020 20:00 - 21:00



What use are human rights in end of life care?

Hosted by RCN Pain and Palliative Care Forum 

It’s 200 years since Florence Nightingale responded to poor care in the Crimean War, now is a good time to assess what we can do to improve care, so it is genuinely person-led.

This event aims to increase RCN members’ understanding of the significance of the human rights framework in supporting decision making and care planning in end-of-life care.

Delegates will gain a deeper understanding about end-of-life care, feel more confident in decision making in a person-led manner, as well as thinking more widely about human rights and what it means in end-of-life care practice.

Jacqui Graves, Sue Ryder's Human Rights Lead at Sue Ryder will present, and Baroness Ilora Finlay will respond on what can be done at a parliamentary level to support this agenda.
