Report highlights growing need to improve end of life care for minority ethnic groups

A PHE-commissioned report highlights the growing need to make end of life care more accessible and appropriate for minority ethnic groups.

With black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) groups aged 65 and over set to treble in the next 25 years, a PHE-commissioned report highlights the growing need to make end of life care more accessible and appropriate.

A report, Palliative and End of Life Care for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Communities in the UK, concludes that the end of life care needs of BAME communities are varied, growing, and despite examples of good practice, overall not adequately met.
