New SPPC Strategy Published

The Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care has published Bringing People Together, a new organisational strategy which sets out our strategic priorities for the next three years.

The strategy was developed by the SPPC Council together with SPPC members and other stakeholders between October 2016 and March 2017.

It outlines four main strategic priorities that the SPPC will work towards between 2017 and 2020:

Listen, Inform & Connect

Over the next three years we aim to:
  • Generate, gather and share information and expertise which supports organisations and practitioners to improve care.
  • Foster networks which support collaboration and joined up working between organisations and individuals towards realising the aims of Scottish Government's Strategic Framework for Action on Palliative and End of Life Care.
  • Support research and the spread of effective practice and innovation.

Give Voice

Over the next three years we aim to:

  • Provide channels through which the experiences and ideas of those working in this field can influence the development of policy and practice.
  • Advocate the value of good care towards the end of life.
  • Enable the views and experiences of the public, patients and families to be heard and exert influence.

Promote open and supportive attitudes and behaviours

Over the next three years we aim to:

  • Provide information, resources, leadership, ideas, networks and events which promote more open and supportive attitudes and influence public policy.
  • Promote the importance of planning ahead for ill health and death, and reducing inappropriate medical interventions towards the end of life.
  • Build the inclination, confidence and capacity of other organisations to promote open and supportive attitudes and behaviours relating to death, dying and bereavement.

Ensure our impact

Over the next three years we aim to:

  • Improve our funding position.
  • Support and develop our employees and volunteers.
  • Position ourselves to better engage with and serve all staff who care for people towards the end of life, whether or not they identify their work as"palliative care".
