Out of the Shadows: End of life care for people with dementia (February 2009)
This publication is the culmination of over two years' work looking specifically at the palliative and end of life care needs of people with dementia. It brings together current understanding of the issues and challenges and it is informed by people with dementia and their carers about their needs. Solutions identified through the project including local practice examples are included to support service development. The key findings of the publication are mapped against the nationally recommended pathway from the End of Life Care Strategy in England to help integrate policy and practice.
