Abstract

The Palliative Care Outcomes Collaboration (PCOC), Australia, and the Outcome Assessment and Complexity Collaborative (OACC), UK, are initiatives that support the routine use of outcome measures in specialist palliative care. Both initiatives follow a sophisticated implementation approach, facilitating routine clinical assessment tools that can be used to measure and benchmark patient outcomes. Both projects also provide feedback to participating services and encourage the use of outcomes data for service development.
