End of life care improvement collaborative


We ran a 150-day programme, involving 16 volunteer trusts, to improve end of life care across a number of settings.

About the collaborative

This collaborative was set up to improve the experience and quality of care received by patients at end of life. 

16 trusts volunteered to be part of the programme to drive quality improvements, each shared their best practice, what they have learnt about quality improvement and helpful techniques with each other.

Our support offer

We're supporting trusts taking part in the collaborative to adopt improvement methodologies and creating a learning community for them to discuss the changes they're implementing and share their findings.  We linked trusts from across regions and service area to share progress and challenges to form strong networks.

Throughout the collaborative sessions were held in improvement methodology including, process mapping, driver diagram development, using PDSA cycles to test theories of change, measurement for improvement and scaling and sustaining change. 

How many trusts are part of the collaborative

There are 16 trusts taking part from a range of different care settings, including acute, community and integrated trusts.

Trust's feedback so far

We have thoroughly enjoyed being part of this collaborative; it has enabled us to look at something which probably would have been on the ‘back burner’ and to work in a very positive engaged way. I am extremely proud of the work our team has done and how much they have developed as leaders!
