Why this conference is important
Modern day, communication technologies are changing the world. The way in which we live, the ways in which we plan for death and remember our loved one’s is increasingly moving into the digital realm. Health, social care and palliative care professionals need to adapt practice, policies and procedures to better support society with this ever-increasingly important area.
What to expect
The Digital Legacy Conference examines society’s attitudes and behaviours in relation to technology, end of life planning, death and bereavement. The conference’s goal is to empower palliative and end of life professionals to better understand this emerging space and adapt ways of working to embrace it.
Who is the Digital Legacy Conference for?
The Digital Legacy Conference is for those involved in care planning, social care, healthcare, palliative, hospice and bereavement professionals. It is also relevant for policy makers, technologists and academics working within this sector.
