Description:
In 2001, the Report of the National Advisory Committee on Palliative Care (NACPC) stressed that all clinical and support work for those who are dying should be informed by what is termed 'a palliative care approach', focusing on excellent communication and a concern with quality of life for both patient and family. There was also a growing awareness among those caring for people dying in hospitals of the need for improvement in the provision of end-of-life care outside of specialist palliative care settings. This led to the launch of a pilot project in 2004 called Care for People Dying in Hospitals by the Irish Hospice Foundation (IHF) in Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda and the subsequent establishment of the Hospice Friendly Hospitals Programme (HfH) throughout the country.
