Authors: Aoife Brick , Samantha Smith , Charles Normand

Research Areas: Health and Quality of Life

This project aims to examine evidence on the cost and cost effectiveness of alternative models (comprehensive, intermediate, limited) of palliative care in the Irish health-care system. There are two phases to the project. The first phase focuses on collating and assessing available evidence on the costs and cost effectiveness of care for people who are dying in the international and national context. The second phase focuses on comparing the costs and outcomes of alternative models of palliative care for dying patients within the Irish system. The project is ongoing and is due to report in 2013. The research team is led from Trinity College Dublin, in collaboration with the ESRI and other stakeholders, and the project is funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies.
