I was delighted to be invited to speak at Hospice UK’s 2018 Annual Conference in Telford. Around 800 delegates attended, from palliative care services based in hospices, hospitals and community settings. The varied programme considered the needs of patients, family/carers and professionals. We heard about research, theory, practical action, service planning, politics and inclusivity; we met old colleagues and made new friends. There were workshops, lectures, posters, stalls, information and a cartoonist! Lots to think about.
I gave the end of conference address: Death Stories. It was live-streamed and posted on Facebook, and can be viewed here. Spoiler: it mentions death, dying and the human condition. And the Little Mermaid.
