Needs assessments in palliative care: producing global guidance.

Assessing the global need for palliative care –


  • Our research team at King’s College London is developing a key guidance document for needs assessments in palliative care.
  • The guidance will be evidence-based, so we are conducting a global review of all relevant work including country reports, rapid appraisals and even small local reports for hospices and home based care.
  • We want to represent your work in this important review – so get in touch if you know of anything that could be relevant.

Please note that in return for your assistance, you will receive a priority copy of our report and you will be fully acknowledged. The report will give a simple guide to conducting needs assessments in palliative care.

Please contact Sam Hart for further information and/or to get involved:
