Description:
The decision to undertake this plan was based on discussions between the Minister for Health & Children, the HSE and bodies such as the Irish Hospice Foundation, the Irish Cancer Society and the Irish Association of Palliative Care. The work was undertaken in partnership with all relevant stakeholders, including both the statutory and voluntary sectors It details the required actions and initiatives necessary to address the gaps in palliative care service provision, against the recommendations set out in the 2001 report of the National Advisory Council for Palliative Care. This takes a patient centred approach and ensures that patients’ particular and unique needs are addressed in a holistic manner. The national priorities selected are aligned to national healthcare policy and the HSE’s Transformation Programme and Corporate Plan. This framework sets national priorities which have been agreed by all stakeholders based on solid needs analysis to ensure that services do not develop in an ad-hoc fashion and that any developments proposed in future reflect areas of greatest need. Such an approach ensures an equitable approach to service provision as well as consistency in inputs such as pay and non-pay costs as well as levels of staff. The national priorities reflect the gaps that currently exist in particular areas and services and the prioritisation reflects the largest gaps.
