Evaluation of the Palliative Care Toolkit Report

The Palliative Care Toolkit: Improving care from the roots up in resource-limited settings;
was developed in 2008 with support from the Worldwide Hospice Palliative Care
Alliance (WHPCA) in partnership with Help the Hospices (HtH), now operating as
Hospice UK.


The aim of toolkit was to strengthen the capacity of health care workers to deliver
quality holistic care to individuals with life threatening illnesses and their families. The
rollout of the toolkit sought to expose and introduce health care workers, particularly
those in resource poor settings, to the concept and principles of palliative care as well as
provide strategies to apply the approach in local settings for enhanced coverage of
quality care.


The Toolkit has been in use in various parts of the world since it was first published. It
is against this background that WHPCA commissioned an independent evaluation of
the Toolkit to better understands the scope of its use worldwide, and the impact it has
had on community and grassroots palliative care. The evaluation is expected to inform
the revision of the Toolkit and the appraising of options for scale-up of community
driven palliative care around the world.
