The All Ireland Institute of Hospice & Palliative Care have just released a new systematic review of palliative care research conducted in Ireland over the ten year period between 2002 /2012.

The review identifies a number of  themes under which research articles have been published in the time period including, symptoms and settings, bereavement, disease groups and communication.

The review indicates a significant increase in peer-reviewed articles on palliative care in Ireland, particularly in the last five years . It also indicates a preference for needs analyses over outcome measurement research  and a need for further collaboration across institutions.

The full report including appendices with summaries of articles can be accessed online HERE. For further details of Irish research in Palliative care, end-of-life and bereavement  you can browse the Irish Hospice Foundation’s library catalogue listings of Irish Research HERE
