Lenus, the Irish Health Research repository is the leading source for Irish research in health and social care maintained by the HSE health librarians. The Lenus collections include peer reviewed journal articles, grey literature, dissertations, reports and conference presentations. Lenus contains the publications of the Irish Health Service Executive (HSE) and the collected research output of over 130 health organisations past and present are all freely accessible. If you are an Irish Researcher or have conducted research in an Irish Institution or Health Organisation you can add your published research to Lenus. Submitted articles must be available in Open Access format or the publishers policy permit author self archiving. Publishing on Lenus or in an open format is a great way to ensure that Irish research can reach as many people as possible and therefore increase the potential for that research to impact in decision-making and inform evidence-based healthcare.

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.
