End of Life Care Guide

End of Life

Many people no longer know what normal dying looks like due to increased life expectancy and most people dying in hospital.
We need to help patients and their families relearn what to expect from the dying process.

A guide to facilitatng compassionate conversations for ambulance staff has been produced help clinicians talk to patients and their families about dying.
The guide provides practical tips for preparing for a conversation, bringing the patient/family towards an understanding of the situation, and then bringing the conversation to a conclusion.

The guide Improving End of Life Care for Patients is available to download as a PDF document below.
