Cecily Saunders Lecture 2018
Cicely Saunders International Annual Lecture 2018:
Improving end of life care: lessons learnt, what now, what next?
It has been more than three years since the Liverpool Care Pathway was phased out in favour of personalised end-of-life care plans for individuals. Despite its obvious failings, the LCP ignited a number of conversations, both at a national and political level, about the way the dying are treated in our increasingly medicalised society. 100 years on from the birth of the founder of the modern day hospice movement, Baroness Neuberger examines the lessons learnt from the LCP, reflects on the ways in which recent research has improved the practice of palliative care and highlights the future challenges which face this essential field of medicine.
