POS workshops Feb 2019
Two-day interactive event on family of Palliative care Outcome Scale (POS) measures and their use in advancing clinical care and research.
 
The two day 'Outcome Measures in Palliative Care: Using the POS Family of Measures' workshops will be held on 7th and 8th of February 2019 at King's College London, Cicely Saunders Institute (London, UK). The aim of the workshops is to introduce and support the use of the POS family of measures in clinical, research and care settings. The event is for all professionals (nursing, doctors, physiotherapists, psychologists, occupational therapists, social workers, managers, allied professionals, commissioners and researchers) with an interest in palliative and end-of-life care.

This meeting is a great opportunity to share your innovations and learn from others. Attendees will be encouraged to discuss issues relevant to their organisation as well as share their experiences of implementing POS measures for clinical and/or research purposes. We encourage you to submit abstracts. Please click here to go to the Call for Abstracts page.
 
During the event, there will be workshops and interactive sessions on implementation of POS family of measures. The attendees will have the opportunity to practice administration, scoring, data capture using measures. This year's event will also host 'POS Clinics' on both of the days giving the delegates the opportunity to discuss their challenges and experiences with an expert panel.
 
A number of informative sessions will convey experiences from the field, and address administration, scoring, development, validation of the measures, and also introduce principles of sample selection, analysis and interpretation of outcome data and how it outcomes could be used to improve services.
 
There will be oral and poster presentations on experiences of utilizing condition specific and integrated versions of the measures across settings, specialities, cultures and countries. If you would like to share your experience of using POS family of measures in your practice and setting, please consider submitting an abstract. (Click here to go to the Call for Abstracts page.)
 
These interactive workshops are an opportunity to discuss the best ways to implement and integrate POS measures into clinical practice and research, hear updates about the measures including translations and disease specific versions, and learn how to use POS data for service quality improvement. The workshops are highly relevant to professionals at all levels working in a wide range of palliative and end-of-life care settings (hospice, primary and secondary care, care homes, community services, specialist palliative care, social care) who are already using or planning to use POS or other patient reported outcome measures.
 
Please note that the event is accredited by Royal College of Physicians. The detailed program of the workshops will be made available on this page later. Please book early to avoid disappointment as places are limited. We are unable to admit unregistered visitors who may wish to attend the event on either day.

Registration information and fees (2019):
 
We highly recommend attendance to both days, as they will have presentations from users of POS family of measures, and opportunities for discussion and networking that will be relevant to all attendees. However, attendees may choose to attend only one of the days if they wish. The first day of the workshop will focus on clinical utilization of the POS family of measures and the second day will emphasize their use in research.
