APM Position Statements
The APM Ethics Committee has produced a series of Position Statements on the following subjects, which may be downloaded here.
The following letter has been sent to the Daily Mail in response to an article and opinion piece they published on 25th October 2012:
The claim in today's Daily Mail, that the Association for Palliative Medicine (APM) is breaking rank with the public stand of other medical bodies, is not correct. The APM is a signatory to the Consensus Statement on the Liverpool Care Pathway for the Dying Patient. Our position on this remains unchanged. The APM will be joining other organisations in continuing to improve practice.
