Description

The Liverpool Care Pathway developed in the 1990’s was a generic model intended to replicate palliative care across settings.  In 2013, the Leadership Alliance for the Care of Dying People (LACDP), a coalition of 21 national organizations, recommended that the United Kingdom phase out the use of the Liverpool Care Pathway in palliative and hospice care by 2014.  It was recommended that generic protocols are not the right approach to caring for individuals in palliative care.  Instead, care should be individualized and reflect the needs and preferences of the dying person.
One Chance to Get it Right outlines the priorities and objects of the newly implemented care pathway.
