Care of the Dying Survey Report SCV PCCN

Safer Care Victoria's Care of the Dying Survey Report summarises the first phase of the care of the dying person project currently running in the Palliative Care Clinical Network.

It reports on care of people in the last days of life in acute care settings in Victoria and describes progress so far, including:

  • Best care principles for care in the last days of life 
  • Results of an organisational survey and patient record audit to help health services understand how care was delivered
  • What care patients in the last days of life are receiving 
  • The next steps for phase two of this project.
