Resources: Challenges in palliative care
With 2017 marking the 50th anniversary of the hospice movement, we review the challenges of palliative care, and how society, care services, the public and professionals will all need to work differently to ensure that people die well in the future.
This resource page provides valuable material on bringing together creative and innovative approaches to today’s palliative challenges, and re-ignites the pioneering ethos of the hospice movement.
Lectures and key references also focus on the concept of ‘design thinking’ in healthcare issues and how one can encourage the development of new collaborative solutions in palliative care.
