Developing Skills in Evidence Based Palliative Care

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

That palliative care is high quality and evidence-based is one of the guiding principles of the 2018 Australian National Palliative Care Strategy. Evidence-based practice is the provision of care informed by the best available evidence and clinician experience which respects patient preferences and values. Evidence-based practice in palliative care therefore requires the clinician to consult with the person and their family to plan care in accordance with individual preferences and values, available resources, and standards of best practice. With a rapidly growing and varied body of palliative care research, this can represent an overwhelming prospect for both the experienced and inexperienced clinician.
