Care of the Dying

On 21 September 2015, AIIHPC facilitated a workshop in Belfast to discuss the draft NICE Guidelines on Care of the Dying Adult and to consider what matters most for patients and their families in the last days of life.

Seventeen users, carers / previous carers and citizens with an interest from Voices4Care and the Patient Client Council in Northern Ireland participated in the workshop.

Feedback from the day was shared with Northern Ireland’s Living Matters Dying Matters Implementation Board for their consideration. Recommendations will also help inform AIIHPC’s Palliative Hub’s End of Life stage on the Palliative Hub – Adult website.
