Earlier this year Marie Curie published Living and dying with dementia in Scotland: barriers to care which looked at the challenge of improving care and support available to people with dementia, and their families, at the end of life.

In the report, the charity highlighted that people with dementia are not being appropriately identified for end of life care, and that they have less access to, and receive poorer quality care than people with other terminal illnesses. Marie Curie believe that this is not good enough and needs to change.

The conference in November will explore how we can break these barriers and ensure that there is a stronger focus on the needs and experiences of people living and dying with dementia, and their families and carers. Discussions will focus on patient and family experiences, and policy and strategy. It is intended that the outcomes from the seminar will feed into on-going public policy work surrounding dementia at end of life.
