Information standard to close the communication gaps in end of life care

Co-ordination of end of life care receives a major boost today with the publication of a national information standard and associated guidance on record keeping to underpin end of life care services.

The End of Life Care Co-Ordination: Core Content Information Standard sets out and describes a core dataset of key information which is required to support the provision of safe and high quality care. It will ensure consistent recording of information by health and social care agencies and, with the consent of the individual, support safe and effective management and sharing of information.
