Abstract:

This publication is designed to act as an inspiration and resource for trust boards, decision-makers and commissioners, as well as staff working on wards, in bereavement services, mortuaries and end of life care, and those responsible for capital planning. The publication is divided into three parts:

•Part one sets out the scope and purpose of the publication. It describes the Enhancing the Healing Environment programme and its achievements to date. It then goes on to look at the most recent stage of the programme – Environments for Care at End of Life – on which this publication focuses.

•Part two presents case studies of the sites that participated in this latest stage and a summary of the formal evaluation.

•Part three provides two key resources. The first is a comprehensive project directory, offering details of individual projects within this latest phase of the programme, including details of individual works carried out, names of artists and others commissioned, and project costings. The second is the list of references to the entire publication.
