This chapter discusses the analysis and feedback of the data recorded. This is an important aspect of the implementation of the Liverpool Care Pathway for the Dying Patient (LCP). Other ways to analyse and collect the data are studied, and the authors determine whether the LCP can be used for patients without cancer. The chapter also asks whether integrated care pathways can be developed for other aspects of palliative care, and studies the role of the LCP in research and development. Future developments in the LCP and its use in teaching and education are also discussed.

Keywords:   analysis and feedback, LCP implementation, integrated care pathways, palliative care, research and development, future developments
