The aim of this day is to challenge and explore assumptions about living and dying. To encourage creative problem solving that addresses inequalities in and access to palliative care, to explore the lived experience and support needs of patients who may not traditionally access palliative services or those who find it difficult to do so. There will be some experiential work.

We plan to explore the cultural and circumstantial themes affecting some of the following groups:

  • gypsy and traveller communities
  • People who are homeless
  • LGBTQI+ community
  • People with learning disabilities
  • People with enduring mental health problems
  • People who have substance misuse issues
  • People and their spiritual needs

This will include thinking about powerlessness, the role of stereotypes and individuality, and the lived human experience of dying.
