Update on end of life care as Liverpool care pathway closes

The Leadership Alliance for the Care of Dying People (LACDP) has published a statement on end of life care to explain its approach following the demise of the controversial Liverpool care pathway (LCP).

In line with findings of an independent review which concluded the pathway was used indiscriminately, the LACDP says there will be no replacement. Instead it has produced a set of agreed outcomes and guiding principles to support individualised care for dying people.
