How can the variations and inequalities within palliative and end of life care be eradicated ensuring that access, provision and quality is standard for all.
Care providers need to recognize that a ‘one size fits all’ approach only serves to widen the gap in providing quality care. Taking into consideration a person’s background, characteristics and circumstances can help them receive good care whenever and wherever they need it.
The ReSPECT process aims to respect patient preferences and respect clinical judgment through shared conversations between a person and their healthcare professionals. One of its principal aims is to make sure people understand the care and treatment options that may be available to them and that may work in a medical emergency, and to allow them to make healthcare professionals aware of their preferences.
St Helena Hospice has been a joint commissioner of End of Life Care with North East Essex CCG for 3 years. This presentation will demonstrate how we identified local inequalities and how we are addressing them. Examples include the local Palliative care register, our 24/7 Single point of access, the Safe Harbour project (in partnership with Macmillan) which reaches out to marginalised groups, our work alongside the local mental health trust with people with advanced dementia and our current focus on care homes.
Statistics show that patients with a very short life expectancy mostly tend to be keen on talking and communicating about and with their loved ones until their passing away; what if we could go beyond…
WA is a mobile application accompanying its users into a kind of eternity. We believe that although death may end our lives it should never end our relationships.
We are present at the event because we also believe that those affected by End-Of-Life care, need unique and revolutionary relief and final occupation options, not only for the patients themselves but also for their families and their caregivers.
Compassion in Dying has completed a programme of work to engage BAME groups in planning their end of life care, addressing cultural barriers to advance care planning and ensuring that each individual’s beliefs and values are at the centre of decision-making.
Commissioning is key for making sure that the right services are available to meet local need, and that they are sensitive and reactive to the needs of all those approaching the end stages of their lives.
Issues surrounding equity of access to care services and other matters, such as housing, can prevent people to exercise their right to choose how and where they die. Social care professionals can be instrumental in removing some of the barriers in fulfilling patient’s wishes.
