Outcome measures in palliative care: Using the POS family of measures
Speakers to include: Professor Irene Higginson, Dr Richard Harding, Dr Fliss Murtagh and many others.
Abstract: The POS family of measures are a validated outcome measure which is widely used in palliative care in Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa and America. All of the POS family of measures, including POS, IPOS, POS-S and African APCA POS are free to use. These highly interactive workshops are aimed at all professionals in palliative and end-of-life care such as clinicians (nurse, physiotherapists, psychologists, allied health professionals, oncologists, GP, physicians), social workers, researchers, managers, commissioners and educators. The workshops are highly relevant for professionals working in a wide range of settings (hospice, primary and secondary care, care homes, community care, specialist palliative care, social care). If you are already using or planning to use or implement POS or similar outcome measures these workshops will equip you with the necessary important knowledge and skills. The workshops combine theory and hands-on exercises. You also have the opportunity to tailor this training to your needs, by choosing the most relevant parallel group session. During the workshop you will be able to share issues relevant to your organisation as well as learning from the other attendees experience and challenges.
The workshops are facilitated by leading experts including Professor Irene Higginson, Dr Richard Harding, Dr Fliss Murtagh and many others.
