Improving Care of the Elderly

Date: Wednesday 28 March 2012

Time: 18:00 to 20:00

Location: Pannone, Manchester

Speakers: Daniel Bennett

 

Elderly people should feel assured that they will receive the best possible health and social care that they require, and also have the opportunity to influence their own lives. However, recent incidents reported in the media show that the standard of care in the UK, both in hospitals and care homes, can be of detrimentally poor quality, forcing governing bodies to take action to try and improve the care of our older population.

AvMA's essential 'Improving Care of the Elderly' conference highlights recommendations for improving care of the elderly from the Care Quality Commission, how to improve basic training of nurses and re-instilling the caring element which can so often be lacking. The prevention of falls and fractures in hospitals will also be examined and the complex issue of dementia and cognitive impairment in the elderly will be discussed. The programme will also feature age discrimination and access to treatment, pharmacology problems, pressure sores, sharing best practice and claims for the elderly to assist you with your caseload.

This is a 'must-attend' conference for clinical negligence solicitors, barristers and healthcare professionals specialising in elderly care and clinical governance, to ensure that older people are given the best care possible and are properly represented, with the most up-to-date practical and legislative information as possible.
