End of Life Care Chart Audit
Nursing home administrators need tools to measure the effectiveness of care delivered at the end of life so that they have objective data on which to evaluate current practices and improve resident care. Derived from expert consensus and research literature on best practice, a brief chart audit tool was developed in order to monitor and assess the care delivered in the last month of the resident’s life. The Auditing Care at End of Life (ACE) Tool, captures care delivered across the physical, psychosocial, spiritual and cultural domains. Further information on the development of the ACE tool, can be found below.
