Title: Public Awareness Coalition
Author: National Council for Palliative Care
In a nutshell: In 2008, as part of its new End of Life Care Strategy for England, the Department of Health asked the National Council for Palliative Care to lead a national coalition to promote public awareness around death, dying and bereavement. Over the past few months initial steps have been taken to set up the coalition and preliminary work is now underway. The first newsletter sets out the broad aims and our approach to setting up the coalition and some of the work already in progress.
