Conference - Hospice: the heart of end-of-life care/Harrogate/October

We've received a Programme and registration form for this conference, to be held over three days (October 2-4 2007) in Harrogate International Conference Centre. The programme is packed with high calibre presentations, stimulating workshops and the full range of conference goodies one might expect at such a prestigious event. Topics include Care for Carers, the Cancer Experience Collaborative, Dementia and Palliative Care, Volunteer issues, the Mental Capacity Act, Advance Care Planning, and research into the value of supportive and palliative care.

The sponsors advertise it as an event that will interest hospice staff, trustees and volunteers, clinicians in palliative care settings, policy-makers and researchers, and colleagues from around the world. There will be, I think, more than enough to satisfy and fascinate anyone with a mind for hospice from a Buddhist perspective.

The cost of registration for the full three-day event is £240 per delegate plus VAT, with lower charges for one- or two-day attendance, and refreshments are included.

I am committed to another event on the days concerned, but if anyone would like to attend to represent us, or as an individual without representative status, I shall be happy to pass on details, which are in any event posted on the Help the Hospices website
