Compassion in Dying publishes new resource for end of life care

30 November 2017

Compassion in Dying has just published a new resource to help people with life-limiting conditions or those who are caring for someone at the end of life find the information they need about treatment.

Following research with more than 600 people, What now? Questions to ask after a terminal diagnosis is designed to help people find the information they need and ask questions, so that they can make informed decisions about their treatment and care , helping them to live well in the time they have left. It is a resource for health and care professionals working in a range of settings, as well as people living with a life-limiting or life-changing condition and their families.

This booklet is designed for people with a life-limiting condition  but it can be used by anyone who has to make a decision about their treatment or care, for example those living with a serious illness  that may mean a big change to their lifestyle. Examples include cancer, dementia, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, heart attack, stroke, and organ failure.

To order the booklet visit Compassion in Dying. It will also be available at all 20 Maggie’s Centres, Penny Brohn Centre and St Helena Hospice
