Issued Date: 5 Apr 2013

Abstract


The provision of bereavement support services is an essential component of specialist palliative care. However, in the absence of national guidelines and standards, actual services vary significantly from place to place. This article shows the influence of research on the development of a bereavement support service, highlighting key turns in the decision-making process. While the redesign is still in process, the paper illustrates how research informs policy and proce-dure.
