    Abstract

    The Confidential Inquiry into Premature Deaths of
    People with Learning Disabilities reviewed the deaths
    over a two-year period of all people with learning
    disabilities living in five primary care trusts. It aimed
    to identify good practice in the care of people with
    learning disabilities, and to contribute to learning and
    recommendations about what might have been done
    differently. This article presents a case study about
    end-of-life planning and palliative care. It discusses
    how a multidisciplinary team collaborated to support
    an individual with a terminal condition. Examples
    are given of the good practice recognised by the
    confidential inquiry investigation and learning points
    arising from the case are highlighted.
