The new national Clinical Guideline for Care of the Dying Adult was published by NICE on 16th December 2015.

This conference will support your service to ensure the clinical guideline is implemented effectively in your organisation to improve end of life care, outcomes and experience  for dying people and their families.

On release of the guideline Prof Ahmedzai, Chair of the NICE Guideline Development Group said -Until now we have never had guidelines in this country on how to look after people at the end of life. This evidence-based guideline provides a good overview of how to give good end of life care in any setting in the NHS.” He added: -The main way this guideline differs to the LCP is that it stresses an individualised approach rather than a 'blanket" method of using the LCP in an unthinking way. The guideline also stresses that the patient should be reviewed daily, and the person should always be taken as an individual.”
