This year’s conference - ‘Working with Change’

The 2019 conference is being held in the beautiful and peaceful setting of  Launde Abbey from 8-10th November.  Its title reflects the fact that change is inevitable/unavoidable and affects every one of us at every point in our lives.   Almost every aspect of palliative and end of life care is about change; for patients, for loved-ones, for staff.  We are also living in what seem like unprecedented times of change in our country: politically, financially, socially and spiritually.  This changing climate also has an on-going effect on the NHS, on charity funding for hospices and nursing homes, and on carers. 

During the conference the topic will be explored from different perspectives and viewpoints.  Within different presentations underlying questions will be addressed such as: Why change can sometimes invigorate, sometimes inhibit?  How might we embrace and enable change for ourselves and others?  When might we usefully question proposed change?

The holistic ethos of the conference will have an inclusive, innovative and inquisitive approach underpinned by its christian foundation and values; it is suitable for anyone working or volunteering in palliative, end of life and bereavement care.  It includes presentations, workshops, discussions, and more creative experiential sessions, all led by expert practitioners.  It will contain sessions which are patient focussed and those which are focussed on ourselves. At the end of each day there will be an inclusive reflective space suitable for anyone to attend if they wish. 

Walks, a bar, good food, music-making, relaxing, talking, creativity are all included.  
The aim of this unique conference is that delegates would leave feeling restored, refreshed and renewed.
