About the Event
The Art of Dying Well
Is it possible to die well? And if so: how do we best support those in our circle of care to die well?
What about our own death: how do we go about facing our own death well?
Join the Director of the Centre for the Art of Dying Well, Maggie Doherty, in an exploration of these questions and more.
The Swan End of Life and Bereavement Care Model
Fiona Murphy MBE
Developed and implemented by nurses in 2012 following family complaints and Care Quality Commission concerns regarding standards of end of life and bereavement care, the SWAN Model (Signs, Words, Actions, Needs) has the key principle "permission to act and break the rules that don't exist". Instigated at the point of recognition of dying and distinguished by a swan symbol, it supports care through end of life into bereavement and beyond. Adopted in 60 care organisations across the UK, SWAN is an example of best practice in providing high-quality, individualised end of life and bereavement care for every patient, every family, every time.

Fiona Murphy RN MBE
Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, UK
Fiona Murphy MBE and Honorary Doctorate (Health Care) is Director of Nursing at the Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in the north west of England. Fiona believes that end of life and bereavement care is the responsibility of all professionals, regardless of workplace or job role, and that creativity is needed to be able to deliver a first-class service that is equitable to all those under the umbrella of end of life care. That is why she created the SWAN End of Life & Bereavement Care Model, a simplistic tool that makes end of life and bereavement care everyone's responsibility.
