Liverpool care pathway

Liverpool care pathway

An integrated care pathway recommended as a best practice model by the UK Department of Health, which has been used at the bedside of the dying in the last hours and days of life. The LCP transfers the best quality for care of the dying from the hospice movement into other clinical settings—hospitals, care homes, in the individual’s own home and community—so that wherever the person is dying there can be an equitable model of care.
