Report of the National Advisory Committee on Palliative Care 2001
It is anticipated that the need for palliative care services will increase in coming years. Population projections indicate that between 1996 and 2031 the population aged 65 years and over is expected to more than double.
Palliative care is care that improves the quality of life of patients and theirfamilies who are facing the problems associated with life-limiting or life threatening illness.
The aim of this framework is to provide a consistent language and set of descriptors that healthcare providers and planners can use when describing palliative care services and use as a tool when planning service development.
The ‘Minimum Data Set’ (MDS) is a national survey of demographic and patient activity data for specialist palliative care services in the Republic of Ireland.
This national palliative care policy for children aims to provide a foundation upon which service development can take place.

The intention of this new report is to provide a national overview of the current provision of and future need for respite care for children with life-limiting conditions.
