End of life care for homeless 'can be improved'

  • Comment

Community and accident and emergency nurses are among those who could work with housing services to improve end of life care for homeless people, according to a guide published by the National End of Life Care Programme.

The Route to Success in End of Life Care – achieving quality in hostels and for homeless people offers hostel staff guidance on what to do when clients are in the last year of life.

The guidance authors also say practice nurses, district nurses and specialist palliative care community nurses can support hostels by ensuring clients are able to access appropriate end of life care in accordance with their needs and wishes.
