The International Collaborative for Best Care for the Dying Person was established in 2014 by a group of leading international thinkers, practitioners and researchers in care for the dying, many of its original members having been part of the highly functioning group that delivered OPCARE9.
It brings together multidisciplinary practitioners in palliative and end of life care who wish to build the evidence base for best care for dying patients through collaborative knowledge transfer, clinical excellence, research, service innovation and quality improvement.
The vision of the Collaborative is for a world where all people experience a good death as an integral part of their individual life, supported by the very best personalised care.
