Welcome to the 2nd international conference of the Centre of Excellence Safety of Older People. This year’s event will focus on the safety of older people’s care and ensuring the wellbeing of healthcare staff.
We are delighted to welcome you to this international conference on improving safety in Older People and maintaining the wellbeing of the healthcare workforce. As a result of advances in medicine, improvements in healthcare, healthier lifestyles and diet we are now living in a society where people are living longer. Demographic projections show that more than 4% of the population will be aged over 85, and greater than 20% will be over the age of 65 by the year 2033. It is imperative that we find ways to provide safe and efficient health and social care for older people in a compassionate and innovative way. We still have a huge ongoing challenge in relation to preventing avoidable harm and thereby achieving a culture of safety and zero harm. The incidents and episodes around avoidable harm can have devastating consequences for patients, service users and families and the staff involved in the care.
The conference themes include:
- Global health and post COVID-19 challenges
- Embedding compassion, dignity and respect in every day practise
- Improving the care of older people with frailty and diabetes in care homes
- Addressing issues around health, wellbeing and support for healthcare workforce
- Improving safety through regulation of professional
