National Voice and NCPC Release Every Moment Counts: new vision for coordinated care for people near the end of life calls for brave conversations

Every Moment Counts: a narrative for person centred coordinated care for people near the end of life sets out how good, coordinated – or integrated – care looks to people near the end of life and is written from their point of view. 

Every Moment Counts has been produced by National Voices and the National Council for Palliative Care in partnership with the national clinical director for end of life care at NHS England, Dr Bee Wee. It draws on surveys, the testimonies of bereaved carers, the experience of end of life care charities and the reflections of professionals that highlighted failures in coordinating and personalising the different elements of end of life care. One of the challenges highlighted is that individuals working to support and care for the person are often generalists who may not have the confidence – or the training and preparation – to open up conversations about choices and preferences. Yet Every Moment Counts shows these are vital to the people and carers in question.
