Call for abstracts: the arts and strategy: the second international arts symposium, St Christopher's Hospice, London – deadline 1 September 2014

This symposium aims to provide an opportunity for artists, health and social care leaders and other practitioners to debate the true value of the arts in health. The event will focus on key strategic objectives, cost effectiveness and the necessity to develop robust outcome measures, within the context of a range of examples of the efficacy of different arts programmes. The aim of the symposium is to clearly articulate the usefulness of the arts within health and social care settings, with a particular emphasis on end of life and older people.
