What do the terms "palliative" and "end of life" care mean to you?

28 January 2014

The National Council for Palliative Care (NCPC) and the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) are exploring what people think and feel when they hear the terms ‘palliative’ and ‘end of life’ care.

The terms ‘palliative’ and ‘end of life care’ are widely used but don’t always mean the same thing to people. SCIE and NCPC are exploring what people from health and social care and the general public think and feel when they hear the two terms.

In order to support better communication between those who give care and those who receive it, SCIE and NCPC are using a number of methods to gather feedback, including a short, online survey.

Feedback will be used anonymously by NCPC and SCIE to help improve communication with people and their families about death and dying. And the researchers plan to share their initial findings in summer 2014.
