The National End of Life Care Programme launched its Social Care Framework, 'Supporting people to live and die well: a framework for social care at the end of life', in July 2010 (to download the framework go to www.endoflifecareforadults.nhs.uk, or request a hard copy from information@eolc.nhs.uk.) Roll-out of the framework is taking place through 9 Regional Roadshows, the first of which took place in the North-west in October. Due to the popularity of this event, a second will be organised in March 2011, date to be confirmed. Dates in the other regions are as follows:

Yorkshire and the Humber - 3 December
East of England - 16 December
East Midlands - 11 January
South West - late January 2011 (date to be confirmed)
South East - 15 February 2011
West Midlands - 2011 date to be confirmed

Eight test-site projects have recently been commissioned to support the development and dissemination of good practice in social care at the end of life.
