End of Life Care Co-ordination: Core Content

Closed 31 Jul 2013

Opened 1 Jul 2013

Overview

The national information standard for end of life care co-ordination was published in March 2012. This standard aims to support communication and co-ordination of end of life care between the professionals and services delivering care. In this way people approaching the end of life are supported to die in the place of their choosing and with their preferences and choices for care met. Minor amendments were made to the standard in October 2012.

The standard is being implemented across England through EPaCCS (Electronic Palliative Care Co-ordination Systems). Feedback on the standard from implementers, systems suppliers, the professional assurance group, the technical advisory and development group has been reviewed and some additional changes to the standard are proposed to improve its usability and effectiveness.
