Refreshing the EoLC Strategy (2008)
“Ambition for high quality in end of life care”
• Due for publication this spring – five themes
- Community engagement
- Patients and carers feeling supported and able to cope
- Professionals feeling supported and able to learn and
provide care
- Addressing inequity and differences in practice
- Developing and improving systems that support efficient
and effective palliative and end of life care
Integration of health and social care
• Pilot sites
• Not just around palliative and end of life care
• Personal health budgets
EPaCCS
Electronic palliative care co-ordination systems
• Evidence from an independent economic evaluation of EPaCCS suggests
a correlation between EPaCCS implementation and the number of
people being able to die in the community in line with their wishes with:
- An additional 90 deaths occurring in a person’s usual place of residence
per 200,000 population each year, over and above the underlying increase in
rates being experienced across England.
- Can save at least £35,910 per 200,000 population each year
- Recurrent savings after four years will be over £100k pa and cumulative
net benefit over 4 years of c.£270k for a population of 200,000 people

EPaCCs
EPaCCS
• Multi-professional workforce training is required to help:
- Identify the patients (and their carers).
- Have the conversations with patients, family and carers in
order establish their preferences for care and advance care
planning.
- Record them on EPaCCS in order to coordinate them
between professionals.
Implementation 2009 - 2012
Future Hospice Commission
• Challenge to hospices to look at their role in
palliative and end of life care
Learning from the LCP
• Clinical advisory group - what good care in the
last days of life should look like
• Terminology – what palliative care and end of
life care mean to people (SCIE)
• NICE guidance 2016
• National Voices developing a narrative on
person-centred care at end of life
