Effectiveness of the Liverpool care pathway for the dying in residential care homes: An exploratory, controlled before-and-after study

Background: Clinical pathways aim to ensure that individuals receive appropriate evidence-based care and interventions, with the Liverpool Care Pathway for the Dying Patient focusing on end of life. However, controlled studies of the Liverpool Care Pathway for the Dying Patient, particularly outside of cancer settings, are lacking.

Aim: To compare the effects of the Liverpool Care Pathway for the Dying Patient and usual care on patients’ symptom distress and well-being during the last days of life, in residential care homes.
