Care After Death
The National End of Life Care Programme has issued some Guidance for staff responsible for care after death. This work has been endorsed by the RCN and the Royal College of Pathologists and sets out principles of care that extend beyond physically preparing the body for transfer either to the mortuary or a funeral director. The guidance is focused on the practice of nurses and doctors, and encourages co-ordinated working with other groups such as care home staff, funeral directors, the police and coroners and their teams.
