: creating and communicating an End of Life Care register that works for the medical and legal professions
This report is a representation of the 2013 meeting ‘Creating and communicating a National End of Life Care Register that works for the medical and legal professions’.
The meeting was intended to update key stakeholders (including representatives from Government departments, practicising clinicians, lawyers and academics) on progress on the Electronic Palliative Care Coordination System (EPaCCS) as well as considering the challenges facing the delivery of excellent End of Life Care. EPaCCS is designed to work across care settings, as a single source of information of an individual’s desires and preferences for their care, including advance care planning and information sharing.
