End of life care coordination information standard published

A new national information standard has been published which specifies the key data needed to ensure co-ordinated end of life care.

 The End of Life Care Co-ordina­tion: Core Content Information Standard will facilitate 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.

The standard was developed by the NEoLCP and the Department of Health and approved by the Information Standards Board for Health and Social Care. Its primary purpose is to ensure the correct and effective use of data within Electronic Palliative Care Co-ordination Systems (EPaCCS)
