The world we knew has changed. Covid-19 has unleashed chaos and the new normal is yet to be defined. The importance that communication technologies have had on our lives and the ways in which people think about death, say their goodbyes and remember their loved ones are changing.

Despite the chaos, moving and memorable moments have taken place. Compassionate, person-centred care by professionals, final goodbyes being said through mobile phones and care home residents being reunited with their loved ones following months of social distancing measures. 

Digital Legacy Event

The Digital Legacy Conference 2021 will examine how Covid-19 has changed and accelerated society’s attitudes around end-of-life planning, death and bereavement. It will review the impact of Covid-19 on Palliative Care (#PalliCovid), whilst ‘exploring new dimensions’ in the online and digital space. An array of international speakers will share their experiences, discuss research, highlight new ways of working and examine areas of best practice.

Following a series of conferences in London, New York and Berlin, the Digital Legacy Association will be running this year’s Digital Legacy Conference online. The event will be available simultaneously on the Digital Legacy Association website and on the EAPC website.

Call for abstracts is now open

The Digital Legacy Conference is a not-for-profit event run by the Digital Legacy Association. This year's conference will be managed from Michael Sobell Hospice and mix live video streams from contributors across the globe.
