Palliative Care Implementation in Long-Term Care Facilities: European Association for Palliative Care White Paper

Palliative Care Implementation in Long-Term Care Facilities: European Association for Palliative Care White Paper: The number of older people dying in long-term care facilities (LTCFs) is increasing
globally, but care quality may be variable. A framework was developed drawing on empirical
research findings from the Palliative Care for Older People (PACE) study and a scoping
review of literature on the implementation of palliative care interventions in LTCFs.
The PACE study mapped palliative care in LTCFs in Europe, evaluated quality of end-of-life
care and quality of dying in a cross-sectional study of deceased residents of LTCFs
in 6 countries, and undertook a cluster-randomized control trial that evaluated the
impact of the PACE Steps to Success intervention in 7 countries.
