A systematic review for palliative care clinical indicators for pain

This project had three main objectives. The first was to review 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
