Seven Dementia Palliative Care Documents Launched

The complexities of providing palliative and end of life care to people with dementia is
increasingly being recognised. However the lack of dementia palliative care practice
guidance and resources was identified in a review of educational needs of Irish healthcare
staff. In a response to fill this gap, seven evidence based guidance documents were
developed. These comprehensive documents aim to support health and social care staff in
promoting and enabling excellence in end of life care for people with dementia and are
relevant across all care settings and at all stages of dementia.

The Irish Hospice Foundation and University College Cork are delighted to announce
that the seven palliative care guidance documents and accompanying factsheets are
now available to download here.
