  • In 2008, the Department of Health published a national framework for end-of-life care
  • The end-of-life care pathway consists of six steps:
    1. Discussions as the end of life approaches
    2. Assessment, care planning and review
    3. Coordination of care
    4. Delivery of high-quality services in different settings
    5. Care in the last days of life
    6. Care after death
  • Local authorities use this framework to develop their local end-of-life care pathway – you will need to be aware of how the pathway is implemented in your region
