End of life care for people with problematic substance use and their families

A special supplement on end of life care for people with problematic substance use and their families.

End of Life Care Guide for people with problematic substance use issuesPeople with problematic substance use, and their families, deserve the same respect and dignity at the end of their lives as people without Alcohol and other drug (AOD) problems.

They deserve care that is based on their needs, care that is delivered without judgement, and care that offers them the best possible choices in the final months, weeks and days of their lives.

Unique research project at Manchester Metropolitan University explored whether or not this was the case. It sought the views of a range of people including people with experience of AOD use and end of life care needs, their families, friends and carers, and the professionals and experts who supported them.
