Palliative care guidelines
Local guidelines not included in the Scottish Palliative Care Guidelines are listed below.
The primary goal of these guidelines is to improve care by minimising inconsistencies in clinical practice through the provision of practical and readily usable, evidence-based or best-practice guidance on a range of common clinical issues. These guidelines have been developed for use by all healthcare professionals involved in the provision of palliative care to those with a life-limiting illness. The guidelines have been produced by collaboration between a multidisciplinary group of professionals working in community, hospital and specialist palliative care services across Scotland’s NHS (including NHS Highland) and third sector organisations.
