Description

From the website: "A time and a place investigates the elements of care that are important to individuals at the end of their life. For too long the focus has been where people want to die rather than how. This report delves deeper into the components of care that people feel are important, and explores more fully what each of these means. By deepening our knowledge of the individual elements, we are better able to understand what constitutes a desired death and to improve personalised care across all settings. The care that people choose should not be compromised by trade-offs. Whilst 63% of people said they wanted to die at home and 78% said that pain relief was a top priority for them, only 27% felt that home was a place where they would be free from pain during their final days. Opening up this debate reveals that simply dying where you want does not ensure a good death." Â
