Human rights in end of life care

Awareness of human rights in end of life care

Based on the full day’s training programme ‘What matters to Me: a human rights approach to end of life care’, developed by Sue Ryder and the British Institute of Human rights this afternoon session is intended to raise your awareness of Human Rights issues in a health or social care environment.

Did you know that the Human Rights Act can be used as a practical tool for making decisions about a patient's care, like whether to withdraw treatment or keep someone in hospital against their wishes? Did you know that CQC have a human rights approach for regulating health and social care services? Human rights are the legal foundations for ethical decision-making and compassionate, person-centred end of life care.

Come along to this free interactive workshop to help you develop your understanding of human rights and how they can support you as an end of life care practitioner. We will be covering:

• The basic principles of human rights and the Human Rights Act

• Identifying human rights issues in practice

• Knowing how to raise a human rights issue when there are concerns

• Promoting and delivering personalised end of life care using Human Rights as a key component

“How someone dies remains a lasting memory for relatives, friends and care staff involved.” - Dame Cecily Saunders
