Abstract

All individuals towards the end of life have the right to co-ordinated care. Failure to co-ordinate care results in numerous problems and reduced quality of life – and death. Nicki Cornwell’s testimony, in the last European Journal of Palliative Care, describes her experience and that of her husband in his last few months life, and will resonate with many healthcare professionals internationally. The events she describes are not acceptable, but are common – and avoidable.
