10 Step 'Continuous Quality Improvement Programme'
The LCP Framework is a continuous quality improvement programme that can transform care of the dying within an environment. The implementation of the LCP Framework will create a change situation. Recognition of the fundamental aspects of a change management programme is pivotal to success to empower, enable and engage those with whom you work. The LCP 10 Step 'Continuous Quality Improvement Programme' (CQIP) for Care of the Dying using the LCP Framework within a 4 phased service improvement model offers guidance on how to successfully implement the LCP in practice.
