Social inequalities at the end of life
This chapter appraises the evidence, principally from the UK and the USA, to determine in which ways the ‘socially excluded’ — the poor, black, and minority ethnic (BME) groups, asylum seekers and refugees, the homeless, those within the penal system, and drug users — fare with respect to accessing specialist palliative care and related services during advanced disease and at the end of life. It presents suggestions on how those involved in public health policy and the delivery of palliative care and related services can extend care to include these disadvantaged groups.
