New report from Sue Ryder examines end of life care

Published Jul 30th 2013

Rather than the current focus on where to die, the recently published report from campaign organisation Sue Ryder calls for a revolution in end of life care, saying it should include a range of considerations, including how people would like to die.

The report, called A Time and a Place, says that “Quality must be redefined based on what the care entails, not only where it takes place.”

And interestingly, “more people want to die in a hospice the closer they get to death.  [These numbers are] most dramatic for those who already have experience of hospice care.”
