One of the things that distinguished St. Christopher’s
Hospice from previous homes for dying patients was
Dame Cicely Saunders’ emphasis on research, and on
developing a robust evidence base for care of the dying.
Good palliative care research is still needed to increase
our understanding of the nature and aetiology of the
physical, psychological, social and spiritual problems
encountered by patients and families, to test the effectiveness
of pharmacological and nonpharmacological
interventions in addressing these problems, and to
evaluate models of service delivery.
