Palliative and End-of-Life Care in Ireland (PELCI)


Project Title: Palliative and end-of-life care data in Ireland (PELCI): establishing the state of the nation, mapping future directions.

Challenge: We currently know little about the end-of-life phase in Ireland: where people die, what health care they use, how family and friends provide unpaid care, and how palliative care shapes these experiences. This project aims to improve knowledge and understanding of these questions.

Outputs: This project will provide the HSE with new information to understand current conditions, and to plan future service provisions and improvements. Our target audience also includes practitioners, the public, patients, carers, and national and international research communities.

Funding and support: This research was funded by the Health Research Board (Project ID#: SDAP-2019-012).

Timeline: March 2020 – February 2022

Keywords: Palliative Care; Chronic Disease, Delivery of Health Care, Integrated; Outcome Assessment (Health Care); Health Policy

Delighted to be presenting at the @EAPCvzw 17th World Congress this morning, albeit not in the lovely Helsinki! #EAPC2021 #familycaregivers #palliativecare

In their 2020 systematic review, Mathew et al found 5 (F-I-V-E) economic evaluations of all #palliativecare interventions to 2017.

I am setting up this occasional thread to track other areas of health care with a stronger #healtheconomics evidence base.
