About this lecture
The annual LOROS lecture seeks to provide a talk that is of interest to a wide audience bringing an expert view of how research is informing our work and understanding in palliative care.
As we live longer dementia is a growing issue and either on its own or in combination with a number of other illnesses is a feature of our later years and end of life. Supporting people to make choices about care and treatment is challenging and often people need to make decisions about treatments including admission to hospital which are of uncertain benefit.
Karen Harrison-Dening is a pioneer in this area and will share with us her work as a researcher, as an Admiral nurse and with Dementia UK.
Any one interested in end of life and dementia including all health and social care professionals, care home workers, volunteers and the public.
