NTtwitchat live debate: What do you think of the new approach to caring for dying patients?


After the axing of the Liverpool Care Pathway, we asked the Nursing Times Twitter community what they thought about its replacement.

  • What do you think of the Bill to terminate lives of those who have 6 months to live. Bad for morale?

  • Perhaps the geographical coincidence between the Liverpool Pathway and the Liverpool HEAT-PPCI trial is entirely insignificant, but concerns that patients may have been placed on the LCP without consent or their family’s knowledge, seems to be alarmingly similar to the concept of 'delayed informed consent', utilised by the HEAT study. There seems to be an inherent contradiction within the latter terminology. It is the absolute need for proper informed consent that drives daily nursing in the management of older people's well being.
