    Abstract

    Evidence has become a very important and widely used
    term. Professionals are urged to develop evidence-based
    practice to ensure that patients receive the most proven
    and best quality care.
    Evidence-based practice looks at
    integrating the providers’ clinical
    expertise with the best evidence
    from research and clinical studies
    and the patient's own preferences. [1]
    Well conducted research studies should provide palliative
    care’s evidence base. As a multidisciplinary field of
    practice, research in palliative care incorporates many
    methodological approaches and diverse study designs.
    The selected study design must, however, be able to
    answer the research question that is being posed.
    Typically, research findings are published in journals and
    form part of the literature resources for palliative care
    education and practice. It is therefore important that
    health professionals are able to access these literature
    resources if they are to integrate new evidence into their
    practice.
