About the event

Anticipatory prescribing is NICE-recommended best practice and considered a key community end-of-life care intervention. In recent years there have been a number of innovations in AP practice and several research studies in the area, in part stimulated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This in-person workshop will bring together clinicians and researchers to share and learn about recent anticipatory prescribing service improvement initiatives and research from across the UK. It will provide an opportunity to discuss and reflect on this important and evolving area of clinical practice.

This event is hosted by The Cambridge Palliative & End of Life Care Group, one of only a few centres for such research and teaching in the UK.

The group's research is global in its collaborations, ambitions and quality. It is also frequently local – with our GP practices, hospices, hospitals, and our nearby institutions in the East of England – as we strive to making a tangible difference. Patient and public involvementforms an integral part of how we ensure our research is directly relevant to the very populations we study.

This event is supported by NIHR ARC South London and NIHR ARC East of England.
