The route to success in end of life care - achieving quality for occupational therapy
28 June 2011 - National End of Life Care Programme
The guide supports proactive intervention for those reaching the end of life as well as the support required by carers. It provides advice on what interventions may be appropriate at each step of the pathway and identifies the areas of knowledge with which occupational therapists should be familiar when working with people reaching the end of life.
It combines both health and social care, in particular recognising the valuable contribution made by the social care workforce and supports occupational therapy values of delivering holistic, person centred care.
