Ambitions for Palliative and End of Life Care

 

This UK national framework urges health organisations and local authorities to act together to improve end of life care for people of all ages. It sets out 6 principles for how people near the end of their lives should be cared for. The 6 'ambitions' for palliative and end of life care are:

  • Each person is seen as an individual
  • Each person gets fair access to care
  • Maximising comfort and wellbeing
  • Care is coordinated
  • All staff are prepared to care
  • Each community is prepared to help
