Improving End of Life Care for People with Dementia is organized by Healthcare (HC) - UK Conferences and will be held on Nov 12, 2018 at De Vere West One, London, England, United Kingdom.
This conference focuses on improving end of life care for people with Dementia. Dementia is now the leading cause of death in England and Wales. In England it is estimated that around 676,000 people have dementia. In the whole of the UK, the number of people with dementia is estimated at 850,000. It is therefore essential that we focus on improving end of life care for Dementia. The conference will demonstrate, through national updates and practical case studies how you can improve end of life care for people with dementia in your service. This event will update delegates on the new NICE National Clinical Guideline for Dementia and implications for end of life care.
Course Objectives are:
• From diagnosis, offer people living with dementia flexible, needs-based palliative care that takes into account how unpredictable dementia progression can be.
• For people living with dementia who are approaching the end of life, use an anticipatory healthcare planning process. Involve the person and their family members or carers (as appropriate) as far as possible, and use the principles of best-interest decision-making if the person does not have the capacity to make decisions about their care.
• For standards and measures on palliative care, see the NICE quality standard on end of life care for adults.
• For guidance on care for people in the last days of life, see the NICE guideline on care of dying adults.
• For guidance on best interests decision-making, see the NICE guideline on decision-making and mental capacity.
• Encourage and support people living with dementia to eat and drink, taking into account their nutritional needs.
• Consider involving a speech and language therapist if there are concerns about a person's safety when eating and drinking.
• Do not routinely use enteral feeding in people living with severe dementia, unless indicated for a potentially reversible comorbidity.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
