Published on

This 'how to' guide builds upon the overarching framework set out in The route to success in end of life care - achieving quality in acute hospitals, published in 2010. The route to success highlighted best practice models developed by acute hospital Trusts, providing a comprehensive framework to enable hospitals to deliver high quality care to people at the end of life.
This 'how to' guide aims to help clinicians, managers and directors implement The route to success more effectively, drawing on valuable learning from the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement's Productive Ward: Releasing time to care™ series.

This guide contains individual sections that can be worked on in any given order, dependent upon the individual hospital and its current end of life care provisions. These can be downloaded below:

Introduction
Section 1: prepare
Section 2: assess and diagnose
Section 3: plan
Section 4: treat
Section 5: evaluate
Section 6: sustain
Section 7: further resources
Cover
It places emphasis on existing 'enabling' tools and models, which support and follow a person-centred pathway. These are Advance Care Planning, Electronic Palliative Care Co-ordination Systems (EPaCCS), AMBER Care Bundle, Rapid Discharge Home to Die Pathway, and the Liverpool Care Pathway.
Publication by the National End of Life Programme which became part of NHS Improving Quality in May 2013

  2. 2. Section 7 The National End of Life Care Intelligence Network The End of Life Care Quality Assessment tool (ELCQuA) The network aims to improve the collection and analysis of information about end of life care services. This intelligence will help drive improvements in the quality and productivity of services. This is an online tool that has been updated recently and enables you to monitor how you are doing and compare your services with similar organisations locally and nationally. Progress can be assessed against a set of core specifications based on the Department of Health’s quality markers and measures for end of life care. The network’s website includes: End of life care profiles – data and statistics on end of life within each local authority area broken down by age, gender, place of death and cause of death Resources – data, reports, analysis and links to other useful sources of information Data sources – a guide to key health, social care and related data sources in the field Advice and information – signposting to advice and information for individuals, their relatives and carers. www.endoflifecare-intelligence.org.uk The ELCQuA website is intended for use by health and social care organisations providing and commissioning end of life care. The tool will enable you to: Plan and monitor your priorities for end of life care Assess your services in a local and national context Share good practice with other organisations Enable the best investment decisions for people at the end of life Gather the information you need to complete Care Quality Commission and other assessments. www.elcqua.nhs.uk 2
  3. 3. The route to success ‘how to’ guide e-ELCA The e-ELCA was commissioned by the Department of Health and aims to enhance the training and education of health and social care staff involved in delivering end of life care. It contains over 150 interactive sessions, which are free to access and focus on: Advance care planning Assessment Communications skills Symptom management, comfort and well being Social care Bereavement Spirituality There is also an integrated learning module which covers specific settings and conditions. Blended learning pathways using e-ELCA have been developed and are being uploaded onto the NEoLCP website. They are; Induction of Band 5 Nurses working in Specialist Palliative Care Services GP Trainees on placement within Specialist Palliative Care Services Ambulance Services Registered professionals working within acute hospitals Clerical staff working in Palliative Care and End of Life Care Services Out of Hours (OOHs) Urgent Care Practitioners Volunteers within Palliative Care Services Feedback on using these to the e-ELCA team would be particularly useful www.e-lfh.org.uk/projects/e-elca 3
  4. 4. Section 7 Podcasts for end of life care facilitators The National End of Life Care Programme has developed a range of podcasts for facilitators to provide information on: Managing conflict – how to prevent a conflict situation from spiralling out of control in order to improve chances of securing a positive outcome Creating impact – the steps you need to feel at ease when meeting others, so you can make the most of the opportunities that arise and create the kind of impact you want Different perspectives – provides the tools to see a situation from someone else’s perspective, ensuring you can create greater influence and avoid conflict Listening to improve – one of the most important skills you have in your influence tool kit is listening, a key component of building rapport with people Storytelling – the power of storytelling as a leadership tool and how to use stories to create indirect influence. www.endoflifecare.nhs.uk/supportadvice/facilitators-and-champions/ podcasts.aspx 4 DNACPR This web resource aims to explore issues around DNACPR but is not intended to be guidance or provide definitive answers. The range of speakers in the podcasts reflect different perspectives and it is hoped that the resource will encourage discussion and analysis of the complexities and different perspectives that surround existing guidance and legislation. www.endoflifecare.nhs.uk/dnacpr Transforming End of Life Care in Acute Hospitals Podcast The Podcast describes the journey front line clinicians from some of the Acute Hospitals have undergone during the first year of participating in the Transform Programme and the difference they feel this has made to individual patient care at the end of life. www.endoflifecare.nhs.uk/searchresources/multimedia/transformprogramme.aspx
