The Western Health and Social Care Trust (Western Trust) is inviting both members of the public and healthcare workers to attend free events focusing on ‘living well with respiratory disease’.

The events are for people with a life limiting illness, their carers and family members and health and social care professionals, with an interest in palliative care.

The highly interactive events will outline the context of life limiting respiratory disease, consider the concept of palliative care and illustrate the importance of living well and taking control. The events will provide participants with useful tips for self-management and where they can access help, support and advice.
