Caring for the Dying Patient
The “Caring for the Dying Patient” document takes into account the issues raised within the Neuberger report and the recommendations in “One Chance to Get it Right”, published in June 2014, which sets out the priorities for care when a person is dying.
It is imperative for good end of life care to have sufficient training in place for teams to manage patients well and to hold sensitive conversations with dying patients and their relatives. This document will help to support that process but forms only a small part of good end of life care.
