Realising Realistic Medicine - Implications for palliative and end of life care

This meeting was cancelled due to the violent events that took place in at the Westminster Parliament in London on the same afternoon. An informal discussion was held with those members who came.

Dr Catherine Calderwood, CMO for Scotland, recently published her Annual Report for 2015/16, entitled Realising Realistic Medicine. This meeting had intended to provide an opportunity to explore the implications of this report for palliative and end of life care. Those present heard a series of short presentations looking at this from different perspectives:

Dr Juliet Spiller, Consultant in Palliative Medicine, Marie Curie Hospice Edinburgh.

Dr Caroline Whitworth, Associate Medical Director for Surgery and Orthopaedics, Consultant Nephrologist, Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh

Katharine Ross, National Workforce Development Lead, Scottish Care.
