POS workshops Feb 2018
2 Day Palliative care Outcome Scale (POS) workshops to advance clinical care and research.
Outcome measures in palliative care: Sharing the POS family of measures in Clinical and Research workshops, 8th and 9th February 2018.
These workshops have been running for more than five years, the most recent of these highly popular workshops was held in February 2017. Due to the popularity of the event, please book early to avoid disappointment as places are limited. (As such, we are unable to admit unregistered visitors who may wish to attend the event on either day.)
The New 2 Day Clinical and Research Workshops will be taking place on 8th and 9th February 2018.
We would encourage attendees to book either for the Clinical day only (to understand clinical use of POS) or for both days (for research use of POS). Please note; we do not advise researchers to attend only the research day, as much useful information and training is provided on the clinical day, invaluable for research use of POS.

The New 2 Day Clinical and Research Workshops are held at King’s College London, Cicely Saunders Institute (London, United Kingdom).
POS is a validated outcome measure which is widely used in palliative care in Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa and America. POS is free to use.
These highly interactive workshops are aimed at all professionals in palliative and end-of-life care such as clinicians (nurse, physiotherapists, psychologists, allied health professionals, oncologists, GP, physicians), social workers, researchers, managers, commissioners and educators.
The workshops are highly relevant for professionals working in a wide range of settings (hospice, primary and secondary care, care homes, community care, specialist palliative care, social care). If you are already using or planning to use or implement POS or similar outcome measures these workshops will equip you with the necessary knowledge and skills.
During the workshop you will be able to share issues relevant to your organisation as well as learning from the other attendees' experience and challenges; participate with oral and poster presentations.
For the first time the enhanced programme will be offering Oral and Poster presentations which we have invited POS users to share their experiences with all attendees across the two days.
