Costs of Emergency admissions in the last year of life for people dying of cancer in Northern Ireland

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

In 2015, 28% of deaths in NI were attributed to cancer. End-of-life (EOL) medical spending may be a major component of (up to 20%) of annual NHS budgets, where expenditure in cancer care is thought to peak. Increased use of acute hospital care, in particular, emergency admissions towards the EOL may indicate overly aggressive care and gaps in routine end-of-life care in community settings. We assess costs of emergency acute hospital care to understand drivers of EOL care in the hospital setting, the implications for the EOL care in the community setting, cancer prevention and diagnosis efforts and treatment pathways.
