Report: End of Life Care Options

More and more people are dying at home, rather than in a hospital or hospice. With this trend set to continue, how can commissioners ensure that end-of-life care reflects this and meets the needs of people approaching the end of their lives and their loved ones?

This new report from the King’s Fund explores what we know about commissioning end-of-life care, the inequalities experienced by particular groups, and how NHS and social care commissioners in England are measuring and assuring the quality of care people receive.

Drawing on interviews with commissioners, stakeholders and experts in end-of-life care, as well as recently bereaved carers and family members, this report offers reflections and recommendations for those wanting to improve end-of-life care for those dying at home.
