The PCACE Project Team has identified different evidence resources to provide guidance on common care and symptom issues faced when looking after older people who need palliative or end of life care.
The main resources used in developing the summaries and syntheses for the evidence topics are systematic reviews, guidelines and significant evaluation studies. The process by which these documents are developed usually involves extensive searching, assessment of the quality of the research, data extraction, peer review and review by intended users. The process is illustrated below.
