Abstract

Older people who use substances are more likely than general populations to have complex non-cancer pathologies which are under-represented in palliative care services. Our work explores mortality and morbidity relevant to end of life care and reveals discrepancies in provision for people who use substances, identifying possible explanations. We make recommendations for improved governance to inform policy and practice change.
