In 2014 Skills for Care and Skills for Health jointly published Common Core Principles and competencies for Social care and health workers working with Adults at the end of life. 

The common core principles: -

1. Care and support are planned and delivered in a person-centred way, with the person’s priorities, including spiritual, emotional and cultural needs, guiding all decisions and actions.

2. Communication is straightforward, appropriate and timely, and is delivered sensitively, taking account of the circumstances, needs and abilities of the person and their carers. Communication reflects an understanding of, and respect for, the person’s cultural and spiritual needs.

3. End of life care is provided through integrated working, with practitioners collaborating to ensure seamless care and support at the point of delivery. Needs are met in ways that are appropriate to the person, rather than being service-led. Workers maintain ongoing communication so that care and support is properly co-ordinated and responsive to changing circumstances and priorities

4. Good, clear and straightforward information is provided to the person and their carers

5. Regular reviews and effective communication ensure that care and support are responsive to the needs and changing circumstances of people at the end of life, and their carers. Forward planning, including advance care planning, facilitates well-coordinated, planned and organised care and support.

6. The needs and rights of carers are recognised and acted upon. Carers are offered support both while caring and during bereavement. Employers recognise the ways in which workers are affected 2014 Skills for Care and Skills for Health jointly published Common Core Principles
