Literature Review Summary Report – National Evaluation of the Comprehensive Palliative Care in Aged Care Measure
We aim to provide documents in an accessible format. If you're having problems using a document with your accessibility tools, please contact us for help.
The Literature Review Report draws on the principles of Rapid Evidence Assessment (REA) to provide a balanced assessment of what is known (and not known) in the literature by using a rapid but systematic methodology to search for empirical studies.
Four key questions guided the literature review and structure of this report:
- What are the palliative care needs of residents, families/carers, staff and the system in RACFs?
- What models of care exist that have proven successful?
- What evidence exists on best practice approaches to funding and delivery arrangements?
- How have palliative care in RACF initiatives sought to address health interface issues?
