Abstract

We aim to assess the effects of end-of-life care pathways, compared with usual care or with care guided by another end-of-life care pathway across all healthcare settings (hospitals, residential aged care facilities, community). In particular, we aim to assess the effects on symptom severity and quality of life of people who are dying and/or those related to the care such as families, caregivers and health professionals.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
