Speaker: Lucy Robinson


Title: Exploring the end of life care preferences of older people living with frailty

Bio: Lucy Robinson is a Palliative Medicine trainee currently undertaking a PhD with Newcastle University. She is exploring how the health and social care preferences of older people living with frailty evolve over time.

Overview: In her presentation Lucy will focus on the findings of a longitudinal qualitative interview study exploring how older people living with frailty conceptualise end of life care preferences. She will discuss how time and intervening events impacted on people’s preferences during the study and what this means for advance care planning in this population.
