The module reflects the increasing recognition of the need for palliative care for people with non malignant conditions. Relevant UK documents include the ‘End of Life Care Strategy' – promoting high quality care for all (DoH 2008), ‘Living Well, Dying Well' (Scottish Government 2008) and reports published by the Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care e.g. ‘Public Awareness of Palliative Care' – Report of the findings of the first national survey in Scotland into public knowledge and understanding of palliative care (2003). Reports and guidance from the World Health Organisation (including the New guide on palliative care services for people living with advanced cancer (2007)) and the European Organisation for Palliative Care highlight the need for global action to improve palliative care education and service provision.
Technology has always been central to the treatment in orthopaedics and rehabilitation. The use of technology has never been greater than it is today. The number and variety of devices available now are almost bewildering. For instance, twenty-five years ago there was only one type of artificial hip and today there are more than forty. This rapid development has considerable implications for all those working in these fields.
