Scottish Palliative Care Guidelines

The Scottish Palliative Care Guidelines reflect a consensus of opinion about good practice in the management of adult patients with life limiting illness. They are designed for healthcare professionals from any care setting who are involved in supporting people with a palliative life-limiting condition.

The guidelines have been developed by a multidisciplinary group of professionals working in the community, hospital and specialist palliative care services throughout Scotland.

The guidelines have been developed in accordance with AGREE criteria and are supported by Healthcare Improvement Scotland and the Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care. You can access the Scottish Palliative Care Guidelines website here.
