Human Rights in Health Care Conference May 2011

5 April 2011

The conference is taking place on Wednesday, 11 May, 2011 at the Neurosupport Centre, Norton Street, Liverpool L3 8LR.

For the past three years, the Department of Health, British Institute of Human Rights and four NHS Trusts have been working together to develop examples of how a human rights-based approach can be put into practice in health care.

Organised by Mersey Care NHS Trust, this event will:

  • Bring participants up to date with the human rights in healthcare programme and plans for the next phase
  • Show how one Trust has been implementing a human rights based approach with people with learning disabilities and the practical difference it can make
  • Launch the Speaking Up For Myself, Standing Up For Human Rights booklet by people with learning disabilities, for people with learning disabilities
  • Provide opportunities to network with others interested in promoting a human rights based approach to healthcare and share examples of good practice.

The event is aimed at those working in health and social care organisations .
