Talking about end of life care

What is good communication in end of life care? We asked doctors, patients, family members and carers to share their views and experiences.

These films capture what they had to say about good practice in communicating about end of life care generally, as well as in the context of clinically assisted nutrition and hydration. The films also include reflections on poor practice and how this could be overcome in future. We hope the films will prompt conversations about these important areas of care and allow you to reflect on your practice.

If you have found these films a helpful talking point, please look at our guidance on end of life care or supporting resources listed below. These contain more detail on the issues discussed and explain what standards we expect of doctors when treating patients approaching the end of their lives.

We would like to thank everyone involved in developing the films, especially those who shared their personal experiences.

These films are part of a series of resources which we are developing in partnership with the NCPC and other expert organisations, to support you to deliver good end of life care and encourage learning and reflection in this complex area of care.
