Abstract

This evidence summary seeks to address the following question relating to palliative and end of life care for people with alcohol related brain damage (ARBD): What is considered good practice in providing end of life and palliative care for people with ARBD? It draws on evidence from academic research, health and social care guidelines and recommendations from specialist organisations to identify examples of good practice in palliative and end of life care, in terms of general recommendations, dementia-specific guidance and ARBD-specific considerations.
