The Human Tissue Authority's annual conference will be taking place on Tuesday 27 June this year, at etc.Venues at One Drummond Gate, Pimlico, London SW1V 2QQ.
This year we will be focusing on conversations around death and dying, and amongst other things we will be discussing:
- issues surrounding the treatment of bodies after death;
- death before birth;
- the public perception of death and dying,
- death in the media – how the media cover death; and
- how the HTA's guiding principles of consent, dignity, quality, honesty, and openness work to protect the wishes of the deceased.
The event will be held in two parts:
Morning session: In the morning we will hold our public Authority meeting which will provide you with an opportunity to observe the HTA’s Board as it discusses its business.
Afternoon session: In the afternoon we will hold the HTA’s annual conference, which will feature guest speakers and discussions on topics within our regulated sectors.
During the lunch break there will be the opportunity for you to speak with Heads of Regulation and their teams, and to learn more about what the HTA are currently working on.
