End of life care guidance: Learning materials
The General Medical Council (GMC) guidance document, "Treatment and care towards the end of life: good practice in decision making" (2010) sets out the ethical principles underpinning good end of life care, and provides advice to support doctors in approaching these often complex and difficult situations.
This section of the GMC website contains the additional materials published to support the guidance. It is intended to be used by doctors and others to understand how the principles in the guidance apply in practice.
All paragraph numbers in the flowchart, vignettes and case studies refer to the GMC's guidance Treatment and care towards the end of life: good practice in decision making (2010) (469 kb, pdf).
