Crisis care 2.1

Supporting better coordination of treatment across care settings

Helping patients and their families cope during a terminal illness is fundamental to good health care and that depends on professionals and the people in their care having access to the right information at the right time to support them.

The PRSB has published the crisis care standard to support better coordination of treatment in primary,acute and community care, as well as hospices, care homes, and social services. The standard will also help patients to avoid unnecessary admissions and procedures. The standard has been updated in-line with PRSB digital medications information assurance.
