about the LCPThe Liverpool Care Pathway for the Dying Patient (LCP) is an integrated care pathway that was developed in the UK with the aim of transferring the hospice model of best practice of care for the dying in the last days and hours of life. The LCP is a tool and a support, to help guide health professionals to deliver evidence-based care to dying patients and their families/whānau, irrespective of place of care or diagnosis.
"The LCP affirms the vision of transferring the model of excellence for care of the dying from hospice care into other healthcare settings. We have demonstrated a process that inspires, motivates and truly empowers the generic workforce in caring for the patient and their family in the last hours or days of life."
