End of Life Care

Living Matters, Dying Matters: A Palliative and End of Life Care Strategy for Adults in Northern Ireland

Dept. of Health, Social Services and Public Safety
2010

This strategy identifies palliative and end of life care as a continuum of care that can evolve as a person’s condition progresses.

 The five year Strategy sets out a vision and direction for service planning and delivery, within the existing legal framework.  The strategy includes dementia among the chronic conditions considered and refers to the work already completed in “Dementia; NICE-SCIE Guideline on Supporting People with Dementia and their Carers in Health and Social Care” (NICE 2006).
