The European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) has produced a draft set of recommendations on palliative care in dementia.
The recommendations have been circulated to more than 80 experts in palliative and dementia care from around 25 countries across Europe and elsewhere to evaluate. Following this evaluation, the EAPC hopes to publish the recommendations in a white paper between 2012 and 2013.
A core team of experts led by researchers from the VU University Medical Center, Amsterdam and the University of Bonn developed the set 57 recommendations, which represent best practice and are evidence-based where possible.
