Following developments in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland supporting care in the last days of life in Wales is changing to incorporate the recommendations and outcomes of the Neuberger Enquiry 2014 and the NHS Leadership Alliance for Care of Dying people 2015.
As a result new All-Wales guidance has been developed that will replace the Last Days of Life Integrated Care Priorities.
The Care Decisions guidance represents a patient-centred model of care focussing on communication, comfort and compassionate care for the patient and those important to them wherever possible.
