New palliative care toolkit includes section on care homes – Alert from the Care Inspectorate

The Scottish Government has produced a palliative care toolkit for application during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Advice from the Care Inspectorate

While it is primarily aimed at NHS Boards, it includes a section on care homes. The toolkit does not replace existing palliative care processes and guidance documents but offers a range of practical tools to strengthen any local response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The toolkit is available here.
