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


The Liverpool Care Pathway was never meant to be the answer to the question “how do we start difficult conversations?”. SOMETHING SHOULD BE MEANT TO DO THAT - WITHOUT THOSE CONVERSATIONS, END-OF-LIFE CARE ISN'T ADEQUATE ! Especially in community settings. Which is part of the problem - some clinicians think 'I follow the pathway - done my job, full stop', and that ISN'T proper holistic EoL behaviour.
