Strategic Framework for Action on Palliative and End of Life Care

Friday, December 18, 2015

ISBN: 9781785449109

The Strategic Framework for Action sets out a vision for the next five years, outcomes and ten commitments to support improvements in the delivery of palliative and end of life care across Scotland.

Executive Summary

The Strategic Framework for Action outlines the key actions to be taken that will allow everyone in Scotland to receive services that respond to their individual palliative and end of life care needs. It is supported by £3.5 million funding over four years which will be used to drive improvement across the sector and support targeted action on training and education. The Framework will also work to drive a new culture of openness about death, dying and improvement.

An Evidence Summary has been written which is intended to inform the process of delivering the commitments within the Strategic Framework. It is a resource for further context and information. It suggests various approaches and reflects on their effectiveness. It identifies gaps in provision and problems to be tackled.

An Executive Summary has also been created which summarises the key points contained within the Strategic Framework for Action.
