MUST READ: Planing for your future care - a guide

The National End of Life Care Programme in collaboration with the University of Nottingham and the National Council for Palliative Care has developed a fabulous booklet on advanced care planning.

It provides a simple and easy to understand guide for people making advanced care plans for their future. I think it will prove to be relevant to family members and informal carers. I anticipate that kidney care professionals will find this booklet a useful support tool when approaching the often difficult situation of discussing advanced care planning with people who have advanced chronic kidney disease.

The initial print run will provide booklets free of charge and it is available to download from the website. If you wish to receive booklets for your service please complete the request form.
