SPPC Autumn Season 2021

This year's Annual Conference was replaced by the SPPC Autumn Season - two virtual events together with a poster display and competition.

Launch of Every Story's Ending

On 8 September, SPPC members and stakeholders gathered together for the launch of Every Story's Ending, a new report by the Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care. The event included presentations, opportunities for discussion, and a short speech and Q&A with Maree Todd MSP, Minister for Public Health, Women's Health and Sport.

Every Story's Ending explores what can be done in Scotland to improve people’s experiences of serious illness, dying and bereavement. Aiming to influence future Palliative and End of Life Care strategy development, it identifies priorities and recommends actions that will make a positive difference to experiences of living with serious illness, dying and bereavement in Scotland.

Poster Parade

Over the years, the poster display and competition has formed an integral part of networking and best practice sharing and learning at the SPPC Annual Conferences. Since the pandemic we've brought this online in a virtual Poster Parade.

36 posters were submitted, showcasing a huge range of work from across Scotland. People came together virtually on 28 October for the Virtual Poster Parade to view presentations of some of this work.

Derek Doyle Poster Prize

Each year the Derek Doyle Poster Prize is awarded to the poster that gets the most public votes. As many people will know Derek was a key figure in Scotland, the UK and globally in the development of palliative care – instrumental in establishing palliative medicine as a speciality, first chair of the Association for Palliative Medicine, first Vice-Chairman of the European Association for Palliative Care and a founding member of the International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care.

This year, the winners of the Derek Doyle Poster Prize were Michael Loynd, NHS Highland and Lorien Cameron-Ross, Highland Hospice, for their poster End of Life Care Together Highland. End of Life Care Together (EoLCT) is a partnership of organisations in Highland focusing on service transformation by delivering outcomes that matter to people and their family and carers in the last year of life. This novel collaboration led by Highland Hospice and with strategic focus from NHS Highland aims to optimise End of Life (EoL) care through a population value approach with equitable access to services.
