• Introduction

    Current

    These resources support the health and social care workforce who come into contact with people who have palliative and end of life care needs.

    What differentiates palliative care from just good care is the awareness that a person’s mortality has started to influence clinical and/or personal decision making.


    • The framework

      Current

      The Enriching and improving experience: new palliative and end of life care guidance, builds on the considerable capacity and expertise that already exists in the health and social care workforce.

      The framework describes the key domains that are integral to palliative and end of life care in all health and social care settings and outlines the associated knowledge and skills required by all workers who might come into contact with people who have palliative and end of life care needs, their families and carers. NHS Education for Scotland (NES) and the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) developed the framework.

      The framework builds on and supports the learning and development needs of all health and social service workers. Integration means that more than ever, teams from different workplaces are coming together to provide care and support, focused on people’s needs.

      The framework closely links to other work like self-directed support, carers, Promoting Excellence, the new Health and Social Care Standards My support My life and recognising and building on these links at local, regional and national level is key to successful implementation.

    • Resources for Care Inspectors

      Current

      This e-publication about the Palliative and End of Life Care framework has been created as guidance for Care Inspectors. It may also provide information for anyone who wants to find out more about this framework.

      Although this publication can be read using any reader that reads ePub files, we recommend that you use Adobe Digital Editions as this will enable you to attach your own notes. As there is a wide selection of readers available, it is not possible for us to tell you if note-taking is available with other readers.

      We estimate that this activity will take 20 - 30 minutes to complete.

      We also have a stand alone audio version of the resource for Care Inspectors. If you click on the link, you will be able to hear the voice track without the text and graphics in the PDF document.
