Description:
The aims and objectives of the Baseline Study were as follows: 1. To present an up-to-date overview of the current state of service provision in hospice/specialist palliative care on a consistent basis regionally. 2. To clearly identify specific gaps in service provision relative to the recommendations of the NACPC report. 3. To provide a solid basis for assessing current and future service needs and for determining the resources required. 4. To make a significant contribution to the work of the recently established National Council for Specialist Palliative Care. 5. To provide baseline data for comparative studies to be undertaken in the future. The study has not attempted to address all of the recommendations made in the NACPC report. It has concentrated in the main on the extent of implementation of the model for service provision outlined by the NACPC, and, integral to that, on the extent to which the recommendations for levels of staffing have been fulfilled. The research approach adopted took into account one of the primary aims of the government’s health strategy, namely to ensure the involvement of key stakeholders in the planning and development of services. From the outset, the Baseline Study sought to represent all service providers in palliative care. Furthermore, in the final phase of the research programme, all of the data collected were verified and corroborated by the key sources in the field.
