A systematic review for palliative care clinical indicators for pain

This project had three main objectives. The first was to undertake a review of the evidence base for clinical indicators for pain in palliative care practice. The second was to recommend a group of clinical indicators for pain to the PCCN, for statewide implementation. The third and major part of the project was to develop a business case for organisations to use in adopting these indicators into their operational plans.
