The management of people with long-term conditions (LTC) and multi morbidity has long been a priority in the NHS but little evidence exists as to how to best manage care of those with complex needs. With 15 million people now living in England with an LTC and multi-morbidity, it’s more important than ever to address improving the management of these patients with an aim of increasing their quality of life and decreasing the number of hospital visits.
Co-badged by the Association of British Clinical Diabetologists, this 1-day medical conference will address how best to manage care of those with complex needs in different clinical specialties and how to coordinate this across specialties. Designed with a practical and interactive focus, the programme will cover a number of conditions and will provide examples of best practice in joint care.
Programme highlights will include:
- managing breathlessness and co-morbidity in COPD
- practical management of steroids in non-endocrine practice
- dementia and end of life care in patients with other long term conditions
- managing chronic kidney disease (CKD) and diabetes
- effective delivery of care to patients with serious mental illness and physical disease – ensuring parity of esteem and parity of care
- delivery of joint medical and social care for complex LTC - The UK Parkinson’s Excellence Network.
The conference is aimed at consultants and trainees from across the specialties, particularly those who manage patients with multiple complex needs.
I've taken away a lot of learning points. This was a great event with highly qualified, impassioned speakers. Thank you
