ILC-UK are currently updating the learning resource pack for the provision of end of life care in extra care housing and would like to hear from you if you would like to provide some examples of case studies or participate in a focus group.

ILC-UK will be using the case studies to demonstrate best practice, to highlight some of the challenges in the delivery of end of life care and strategies to overcome these, and to give examples of new issues arising. The focus groups will collect information from participants on the delivery of end of life care, as well as discussing the best ways to use the resource pack in extra care housing settings. The collection of case studies is an on-going process, while the focus groups are likely to take place in March.

If you would like to get involved or would like more information, please email with EOLC in the email subject
