The Derbyshire Alliance for End of Life Care is a partnership of organisations across Derbyshire supporting education and quality end of life care. This year, we are hosting a range of awareness events across southern Derbyshire, working together to support compassionate communities, promoting the importance of talking about death and dying and bereavement support, and sharing your wishes with others. We want to make sure that as many people as possible in our area know what they should be thinking about, and what they should be communicating, as well as the places they can go to access information and support both in making preparations when they or a loved one wishes are at the end of their life.

To launch the awareness week this year, the University of Derby are hosting a public event which will provide opportunities for our community, students, staff and health & social care professionals to promote the importance of talking about death and dying and supporting ourselves and others.

We will have a range of short sessions, delivered by consultant in palliative medicine and academics about:

Dying Matters- what can you do ....in your community?
Mindfulness of touch
ReSPECT: the launch in Derbyshire of the Resus UK new guidance
