What care do people with dementia receive at the end of life? Lessons from a retrospective clinical audit of deaths in hospital and other settings

We recently received the fantastic news that one of our projects was accepted and published in BMC Geriatrics!

The need for better end-of-life care for people with dementia has been acknowledged. Existing literature suggests that people dying with dementia have less access to palliative care, yet little is known about the care provided to people with dementia at the end of life. This study aimed to establish evidence related to end-of-life care for people dying with dementia in hospital compared to other settings.

A huge congratulations to the entire team – Zoi Triandafilidis, Sally Carr, Daniell Davis, Simon Chiu, Lucy Leigh, Sarah Jeong, Daniel Wong, Jacinta Hensby, Suzanne Lewis, John Attia & Nick Goodwin.
