Compassion in Dying's vision is of a world in which individuals are placed at the centre of their end-of-life care. We believe everyone should be aware of their legal rights and choices around end-of-life decision-making and have their treatment preferences met wherever possible. We seek to support individuals to plan what they consider to be a good death by:
- providing up-to-date information about legal rights and choices, including an Advance Decision form and guidance on appointing a Health and Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney;
- supporting people to ensure their wishes can be respected, through our: Information Line, one-to-one advocacy, training for professionals and information materials;
- conducting and reviewing research into rights and choices in end-of-life care.
