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

People aged 50+ living with PC need outnumber those in their last year of life by ~11:1.
“Population-based planning must recognise where inequalities exist, where demands arise, and how services should be optimally configured to meet need.“
