Abstract

Meeting patient preferences for care at the end of life is a cornerstone of the Department of Health’s End of Life Care Strategy. However, evaluating a service’s impact on meeting these preferences depends upon its ability to understand and monitor patient preferences. The collection of patient preferences is patchy and there is little evidence in the literature on best practice for recording patient preferences on place of care and death. A good questionnaire for collecting preferences and specialised staff training should ensure that preferences are collected routinely and accurately.
