Preferred place of care and death
This chapter examines the importance of ensuring that end of life care patients' preferences for location of care and death are achieved. Preferred place of care and death are included in advance care planning documents (ACP). However, attempts to achieve patients' previously stated preferences on this matter may not always be in their best interests in the later situation when they have lost capacity and making decisions on the basis of their best interests is a legal requirement of the Mental Capacity Act.
