Join us for this two-day conference which will explore the need for a revolution in how we care for people experiencing death, dying and bereavement. Dying is changing; people are dying over longer periods of time, with ever more complex conditions. The Isle of Wight is experiencing this change faster than most and Mountbatten is already working at pace to find innovative solutions to these challenges and increasing demand for services. Our conference will share ideas on transforming services to meet growing demand and ways hospices and healthcare professionals can influence the way our communities approach death and dying. High profile keynote speakers will include Tracey Bleakley, Chief Executive of Hospice UK, Dame Barbara Monroe,past CEO of St Christopher's Hospice and Trustee Marie Curie, Nigel Hartley, CEO of Mountbatten Isle of Wight and Countess Mountbatten in Southampton and Barbara Gale, CEO of St Nicholas Hospice Care. Further speakers and details of individual workshops are to be released soon on our website and via social media. Booking is due to open later this month, with early bird tickets available at a reduced cost.
