The All Ireland Institute of Hospice & Palliative Care have just released a new systematic review of palliative care research conducted in Ireland over the ten year period between 2002 /2012. The review identifies a number of themes under which research articles have been published in the time period including, symptoms and settings, bereavement, disease groups and communication. The review indicates a significant increase in peer-reviewed articles on palliative care in Ireland, particularly in the last five years . It also indicates a preference for needs analyses over outcome measurement research and a need for further collaboration across institutions.
