We have conducted a supplementary survey linked to the Minimum Data Set Survey for specialist palliative care providers that will increase our understanding of:
- the current geographical spread of services provided by Specialist Palliative Care Units and hospices to adult care homes in England and Wales
- the level of clinical support, education and training provided by Specialist Palliative Care Units and hospices to adult care homes in England and Wales.
The survey results will be published in spring 2017 providing a baseline for future developments across this important area of care.
