The ICECAP Close Person Measure (ICECAP-CPM) has been developed as a tool for use in economic evaluation conducted in an end of life setting.
The measure is for use with those close to the patient and covers:
- Good communication with services
- Privacy and space to be with the loved one
- Emotional support
- Practical support
- Being able to prepare and cope
- Being free from emotional distress related to the condition of the decedent
The selection of the attributes for ICECAP-CPM (Close Person Measure) is described in:
