Abstract

The real-world effectiveness of pharmacological and nonpharmacological interventions in hospice/palliative care is often difficult to quantify. The Improving Palliative, Aged, and Chronic Care through Clinical Research and Translation (IMPACCT) Rapid Program adds to the evidence base by prospectively examining the net effects (benefits and harms) of treatments widely used in hospice/palliative care. The program is made up of a series of studies that collect data from a large number of participating sites internationally, on a consecutive cohort of patients where the clinician has already made the decision to use that intervention.
