Full description:

Best clinical practice for looking after people with advanced illness is meant to involve the family. But in practice this doesn’t seem to happen. We need to know why it doesn’t happen and to suggest ways of improving this. Involving the family can mean less distress, better care and more chance to live well until the person dies.
