29 August 2013

In 2010 the National End of Life Care Programme launched 'Supporting People to Live and Die Well: a framework for social care at the end of life' with the endorsement of the Department of Health, and working closely with Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS).

The framework provided a focus and stimulus for delivering end of life care improvements across social care. The progress report - 'Supporting People to Live and Die Well: a framework for social care and the end of life' - has been published by NHS IQ, and supported by ADASS.

It disseminates the results of an audit of the framework in action across local authority social services departments. It demonstrates how the landscape of health and social care has changed, offering examples of good practice, in how people have been allowed to make more informed choices about their end of life care.

Examples of best practice in service innovation and collaborative working contained in the report cover a range of areas including:

  • Increasing public awareness,
  • commissioning,
  • contracting and procurement,
  • patients' end of life care plans,
  • workforce development,
  • education, 
  • social work practice.


'Supporting People to Live and Die Well: a framework for social care at  the end of life' will be useful for anyone working in an end of life care capacity or in local authority adult social care.
