Study days and master classes
Our study days and masterclasses are aimed at health and social care professionals who have an interest and understanding of MS.
End of Life Study Days
The needs of people at the end of their lives have been the subject of increased focus in policy and service provision. Our work with people with MS suggests that they and their families and carers often struggle to get the support they need as their lives draw to a close.
A recent survey of MS specialist nurses showed that many did not feel wholly confident about this aspect of their role. Many also felt that MS, with its complex and sometimes rapidly-changing symptoms, was difficult to fit into the standard care models that were available.
"[We need to understand] how to be transparent and support people to deal honestly with this stage of illness. There are elements of fear about how much we can bring to the care of end of life fear about opening a can of worms."
Anonymous - survey respondent
To help meet this need, we are running three study days on end of life issues which will follow a well established format of sessions headed by experts in the field who can offer practical advice that delegates can use immediately to improve the care of their patients.
The last study day of the series will be:
- Venue: Falkirk
- Date: 25 March
- Price: £55 +VAT (price includes lunch and refreshments)
