National End of Life Care Programme Newsletter focuses on acute care

Categories: In The Media.

There are articles on the National End of Life Care Programme’s Acute Hospitals Transform Programme and a number of case studies from trusts involved in the pilot of the programme, which aims to improve end of life care in hospitals.

The newsletter also includes:

  • a discussion of the Marie Curie Cancer Care research which showed that home-based care can reduce hospital use at end of life 
  • an article on the challenges of advance care planning for people with learning disabilities
  • a report on a project at Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice in Bradford which has increased awareness of hospice services among ethnic minority groups.
