Abstract

Health services research is crucial in end-of-life care because of the complex services and patients and families cared for. Health services research can provide information about the most effective (and cost-effective) strategies to improve the quality of end-of-life care. During recent years some interesting research and study protocols dealing with the evaluation of complex end-of-life programs have been designed and implemented.
