Palliative Care Services Three Year Development Framework 2017-2019

The HSE has published Palliative Care Services Three Year Development Framework 2017-2019. This is a key document for the future development of palliative care in the Republic of Ireland.

The objective of the Framework was to inform and direct the development of adult palliative care services, both generalist and specialist, in Ireland for the three-year period. In so doing, the focus of the Framework was to identify the gaps that exist in the current level of service provision and to present a set of recommendations and actions which over the duration of the Framework (and at times beyond) would seek to address these service issues / deficits, subject to available resources.
