As part of a new regular series focusing on research, Sarah Russell reports on the launch of a new review of end of life care research from the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Dissemination Centre and why it matters to hospices.

This week the NIHR Dissemination Centre (@NIHR_DC) released its end of life themed review ‘Better endings’.


The review, led by Tara Lamont, deputy director of the NIHR Dissemination Centre (@TaraJLamont), presents 17 published and 12 ongoing NIHR-funded end of life research studies.


Grouped into three categories (right care, right place, right time) the review provides robust evidence to help those delivering, planning or using end of life services.  So why do themed reviews like this matter to us in hospice and palliative care? Read Sarah’s  blog.
