Critical success factors that enable individuals to die in their preferred place of death
Highlighting good practice from seven PCTs across the country, this report identifies the critical success factors associated with improving end of life care and enabling a person to die in the place of their choice. The report is intended as a starting point to help those commissioning and planning services to see what has worked well in other areas although it does not suggest that one size fits all.
Transforming end of life care in acute hospitals: the route to success ‘how to’ guide
This guide builds upon the framework set out in ‘The route to success in end of life care – achieving quality in acute hospitals’, published in 2010. It highlighted best practice models developed by acute hospital trusts, providing a framework to enable hospitals to deliver high quality care to people at the end of life. This guide aims to help clinicians, managers and directors implement ‘The route to success’ more effectively, drawing on valuable learning from the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement’s Productive Ward: Releasing time to care series.
