7 Refreshing the EoLC Strategy (2008) “Ambition for high quality in end of life care”Due for publication this spring – five themes- Community engagement- Patients and carers feeling supported and able to cope- Professionals feeling supported and able to learn and provide care- Addressing inequity and differences in practice- Developing and improving systems that support efficient and effective palliative and end of life care
8 Integration of health and social care Pilot sitesNot just around palliative and end of life carePersonal health budgets
9 EPaCCS Electronic palliative care co-ordination systems Evidence from an independent economic evaluation of EPaCCS suggests a correlation between EPaCCS implementation and the number of people being able to die in the community in line with their wishes with:- An additional 90 deaths occurring in a person’s usual place of residence per 200,000 population each year, over and above the underlying increase in rates being experienced across England.- Can save at least £35,910 per 200,000 population each year- Recurrent savings after four years will be over £100k pa and cumulative net benefit over 4 years of c.£270k for a population of 200,000 peopleSource: Economic Evaluation of the Electronic Palliative Care Coordination System (EPaCCS) Early Implementer Sites. NHS Improving Quality. May 2013.
11 EPaCCS Multi-professional workforce training is required to help: Identify the patients (and their carers).Have the conversations with patients, family and carers in order establish their preferences for care and advance care planning.- Record them on EPaCCS in order to coordinate them between professionals.
