The Palliative Care Outcomes Collaboration (PCOC), Australia, and the Outcome
Assessment and Complexity Collaborative (OACC), UK, are initiatives that support
the routine use of outcome measures in specialist palliative care. Both initiatives
follow a sophisticated implementation approach, facilitating routine clinical
assessment tools that can be used to measure and benchmark patient outcomes.
Both projects also provide feedback to participating services and encourage the use
of outcomes data for service development.
