Appropriate care at the end of life

It occurs regularly that patients, caregivers and family members (in retrospect) consider treatments given at the end of life as inappropriate. A survey study has identified the characteristics of good and poor end-of-life care, and the existing views on causes and solutions for inappropriate care at the end of life.
To what extent are those solutions - mentioned in the survey study - feasible, and to what extent will they receive support from patients and caregivers?
Online focusgroups with migrants, older people, proxies and caregivers.
The data obtained in the online focusgroups will serve as input for recommendations to the KNMG steering committee, about which steps to take in order to facilitate appropriate care at the end of life.
