Abstract

The research proposes the introduction of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for end-of-life care - describing them as necessary and particularly timely in the context of the reconfiguration of health services. It identifies two KPIs that seem particularly appropriate for this purpose - proportion of deaths in hospital and proportion of deaths at home – and highlights the need for corresponding KPIs for Specialist Palliative Care services and community services.
