Palliative Care Co-ordination Implementation guidance

Revised September 2015

Implementation guidance thumbnail

The national information standard, which specifies the core record content to support the provision of high-quality co-ordinated care at the end of life, was published 20 March 2012 and last revised in September 2015.

To support its implementation, this guidance has been developed to support local decision making. It provides commissioners, health and social care organisations and IT systems suppliers with the information needed to support implementation of a core data set for palliative and end of life care.

It is particularly relevant for those developing and implementing Electronic Palliative Care Co-ordination Systems (EPaCCS), though it is still a useful resource for those planning to, or currently making use of, paper-based co-ordination systems.
