Comment: ''The Liverpool Care Pathway is only as good or bad as its user''


As a nurse working within a palliative care setting I can agree with many of the above comments. The main issue with this is not the LCP it's self but those persons whom choose not to communicate with there dying patients an there families in a informative and honest manner. The patients an family members within mine an my colleagues care are completely informed, empowered an at ease with the care that themselves or there relatives are receiving and feel comfortable an confident to be able to ask any question at any point during and after care, all solely because communication is an essential basic nursing skill which many seem to of lost the ability to do.
