The Hospice Friendly Hospitals Programme

by Kathy Walsh

Apr 29, 2014
This report describes how care for people who die in Irish hospitals is planned and provided for; and how those processes evolved over the period 2007-2013. The report details a journey and we do not claim to have reached journey's end. The 'Hospice Friendly Hospitals' (HFH) programme, as an aspiration or an idea, meets with very little resistance. Its aim - to transform the culture of hospital care for dying patients is a shared and transparent aim which we believe has now made its way into Irish discourse. While the aim may be agreeable, the means for change are not so straightforward.
