pubTALK - Palliative care - not just for cancer?

Palliative care is the active support of people with life threatening illness, considering all aspects of care – physical, psychological, social and spiritual. It is often associated with the care of people with advanced cancer, although when St Christopher's Hospice was opened in 1967 by Dame Cicely Saunders patients with other diagnoses were admitted. 

My interest has been in the development of palliative care of people with neurological disease and my research and publications has been on this developing field, particularly for people with motor neurone disease. This pubTALK will look at this area and how palliative care, in hospices, hospitals and the community, is developing to care for people with any disease.
