New resource: Palliative and End of Life Care

This post was originally shared on The Christie Library & Knowledge Service Blog.A new website has been created for the National Palliative and End of Life Care Partnership – a broad group working to set standards and improve care by providing a “framework for action in making palliative and end of life care a priority at local level.”
The website is still in its formative stages but it already contains information for those working in Palliative and End of Life Care in England, as well as other relevant guidance documents on specific aspects of palliative and end of life care and will continue to grow as a hub for those working in the sector as more resources are added.It already holds information about the report entitled Ambitions for Palliative and End of Life Care: A national framework for local action 2015-2020 which outlines improvements and focuses. This is also downloadable as a slide show summarising the information. There is also elaboration on each of the six ambitions:


Ambition 1 – Each person is seen as an individual

Ambition 2 – Each person gets fair access to care

Ambition 3 – Maximising comfort and wellbeing

Ambition 4 – Care is coordinated

Ambition 5 – All staff are prepared to care

Ambition 6 – Each community is prepared to help

The website is aimed to be accessible at work on a computer or on the go via a smartphone and is definitely worth exploring!
