Patients with diabetes who are at the end of life, have a unique set of care needs, including those relating to health and social care. However end of life diabetes care has been recognised as an area lacking quality standards and guidance on best clinical practice.
This is the third edition of this guidance, which aims to summarise a consistent but high quality approach towards end of life care for people with diabetes by providing a series of clinical care recommendations. The documents have been endorsed by leading diabetes organisations including: NHS England, ABCD, TREND-UK, diabetesFrail, National Diabetes Nurse Consultants, PCDS and the RCN.
