Description:
Irish health policy is encouraging greater emphasis on the delivery of care to patients with life-limiting disease in community settings. Currently, 90% of care of people in their last year of life is provided for by GPs and Community Nursing. Unlike other countries, in Ireland there are no formal frameworks to support primary care teams identify and respond to the palliative care needs of their patients
