Care for people in the last days and hours of life – the Leadership Alliance for the Care of Dying People – 14 January 2014

“The Leadership Alliance for the Care of Dying People (LACDP) has published an interim statement, which gives an update on its work to date following the publication of the independent report, More Care, Less Pathway, on the Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP).

The independent review concluded that many of the issues around the LCP were that it had come to be regarded and used as a generic protocol or a tick box exercise. Therefore, the Alliance will not produce a replacement for the LCP. Instead, the Alliance aspires to a shared vision for care focused on a set of agreed outcomes and guiding principles to support individualised care for dying people. This will help to ensure that the way in which a dying person is cared for, including the goals and other key aspects of their care, will be focused around the individual, in line with their needs and preferences; and developed and delivered in consultation with them, wherever possible and/or their family.”
