End of Life Diabetes Care – Clinical Care Recommendations

Patients with diabetes who are at the end of life, have a unique set of care needs, including those relating to health and social care. However end-of-life diabetes care has been recognised as an area lacking quality standards and guidance on best clinical practice. This is the third edition of this guidance, which aims to summarise a consistent but high-quality approach towards end-of-life care for people with diabetes by providing a series of clinical care recommendations. The documents have been endorsed by leading diabetes organisations including: NHS England, ABCD, TREND-UK, diabetesFrail, National Diabetes Nurse Consultants, PCDS and the RCN.
