Service activity and cost data
This chapter examines the impact of palliative care services at the wider-population level. It analyses population-based indicators, such as place of death and patterns of service utilization, and suggests that such indicators are sensitive to the impact of palliative care services. The chapter also contends that it is important to look at total costs when undertaking an overall cost assessment because even charitable funding has an opportunity cost.
