Tried and tested End of Life Care Modelling Tools launched today – NHS National End of Life Care Programme – 22 May 2012

“Eight early adopter sites across England have worked with the National End of Life Care Programme to trial a set of modelling tools to support end of life care commissioners and planners.

The updated tools are now freely available on the National End of Life Care Intelligence Network website together with a range of supporting materials, including workbooks and case studies from the early adopters.

There are three modelling tools:

The Cohort Model that identifies the end of life care needs of their population over a 10-year period
The Skills for Health Functional Analysis tool, which assesses workforce skills required to ensure quality end of life care provision
The Yorkshire & the Humber Co-Design Model, which assesses how many people dying in hospital could reasonably end life in an alternative care setting and provides costings for Alternative Care Pathways.

Together these tools:

provide analytical support to organisations aiming to achieve the vision of the National End of Life Care Strategy and the NHS QIPP agenda
provide commissioners and planners with a better understanding of local need for end of life care services and the competences required in the workforce and
model the expected impact of service redesign.

To view the tools, go to End of Life Care Models.”
