Death, Dying, and Social Differences

This chapter discusses the provision of age-appropriate end of life care to adolescents and young adults. The particular needs of the age group have been recognized in policy documents and measures are being taken to meet those needs. Individual hospices are responding to the needs of their adolescent and young adult users, both chronic and acute, and are taking steps to ensure that the care setting is age-appropriate. Even if resources are limited, if the philosophy that underpins age-appropriate care can be implemented across the range of hospice provision and coupled with training packages, shared care, and early planning for transition, this will make a significant contribution to meeting the needs of the age group.
