Summary A qualitative study of staff experiences of end-of-life care for older people in a subacute rehabilitation facility was undertaken using three focus groups with senior multidisciplinary staff (5), junior nurses (8), and junior allied health staff (7). Content analysis revealed four major themes: being a key contact person; the quality of end–of-life care; referring to off-site service providers; and differing perspectives. These data have implications for multidisciplinary practice including staff education and capacity to change focus of care in facilities for older people dedicated to rehabilitation rather than palliation or end-of-life care.
