In the framework of the PACE project on Palliative Care for Older People in care and nursing homes in Europe, AGE Platform Europe organises a conference on 15 June 2016 at the Brussels Office of the Council of Europe. This high-level conference will highlight the need for a comprehensive approach to palliative care and how palliative care is related to other policies and interventions for the improvement of the quality of life of older people, including the access to quality health and long-term care.
The speakers and the participants will be invited to reflect on the need to go beyond the traditional medical silos and consider palliative care not only as a health intervention but also as a practice to be fully integrated in all relevant public policies, responding to the social needs and allowing the care recipient to live well and actively as long as possible.

Connected event on 16 June: Fighting elder abuse in health and long-term care
The day after, June 16, AGE Platform will organise jointly with the European Commission, the Council of Europe and the European Network of National Human Rights Institutions, a high-level conference around the World Elder Abuse Awareness day. It will raise awareness of how inequalities, stereotypes and the lack of a rights-based approach in the provision of health and long-term care increase the risk of maltreatment and neglect of older persons.
