Abstract: The gold standards of care created within the hospice setting are not always effectively influencing national, regional or local policy. This struggle is something which the public health sector has successfully contended with. In particular an approach known as Health in All Policies (HiAP) has been developed to lay down the rules of engagement and guide the exchange between organisations from all sectors. This synergy allows for an exploration of the possibilities of utilising HiAP within end of life care. In particular this study will look at how the HiAP can be adapted to better integrate end of life care throughout the population. Objectives are: (I) to investigate HiAP as an intervention; (II) to develop a framework for implementing a HiAP approach to end of life care; (III) to evaluate the possible impacts of changing the manner in which end of life care integrates within England. This presentation aims to unpick how HiAP guide exchanges between organisations from all sectors. Using this it then explores how we could use this to optimise end of life care.
