Hospice at Home OPEL H@H Study consensus events
The NIHR Health Services and Delivery Research funded OPEL H@H OPEL Study (Optimum Hospice at Home Services for End of Life Care), project is holding two national consensus workshops running in January.
Thursday 16th January 2020; The Met Hotel, King Street, Leeds
Thursday 23rd January 2020; Wellcome Trust, 183 Euston Road, London
At these workshops, the study findings will be shared and discussed with the public and a wide range of stakeholders.
Offering people a choice about where they receive their care at the end of life is central to UK policy and the numbers of people wishing to die at home is increasing. Much effort has been invested in health services to support care at home, including services called “Hospice at Home” (HAH) which aim to offer hospice care in the individual’s home. Professor Claire Butler, based at the University of Kent is leading this national study to answer: What are the features of Hospice at Home models that work, for whom, and under what circumstances? The project is led by the University of Kent in collaboration with the University of Cambridge, University of Surrey, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Pilgrim’s Hospice and the National Association for Hospice at Home. More information about the study can be found at our website here.
