Advance Care Planning in End of Life Care

Jennifer Stothard

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the role of the commissioner, commissioning of end of life care services, commissioning to deliver Advanced Care Planning (ACP), engaging commissioners to support delivery of ACP, and the challenges for delivery. It notes that commissioners have a duty to ensure efficient and effective use of finite resources to deliver the best possible outcomes for the local community. Commissioners as well as providers must culture quality, innovation, and productivity to better deliver these outcomes. Health and Social Care stakeholders and their communities need to work in strategic partnerships and with transparency and probity. ACP as part of end of life care has become a strategic and clinical priority, especially in care homes or specific pathways e.g. cancer, dementia, and long term conditions.

Keywords:   Advance Care Planning, end of life, commissioner, social care, care homes, cancer, dementia
