'Apt questions will improve end-of-life care'

  • Comment

An expert group carried out a review of end-of-life care and developed some key messages to help organisations identify areas for improvement.

The group summarises the main findings here.

Better Endings,which was funded by the National Institute for Health Research, looks at how the right care must be delivered in the right place and at the right time. It raises many pertinent questions for organisations to consider: how are patients who need palliative care identified in the community and in the hospital? What kind of ongoing support is there for care homes? How are staff being supported to discuss with patients and their families plans for their next phase of care?

These are all key questions and will doubtless lead to improvements in care. How would they be answered where you work?
