Formatted Abstract/Summary
Aim: To undertake a comprehensive program of work that will result in palliative care (PC) resources being allocated in a more systematic, objective and transparent needs basis.

Significance: Use of the Guidelines and PC-NAT is expected to reduce the incidence of late and crisis referral and improve referral where psychological, social, physical and spiritual problems are evident. Improved outcomes for patients and families are expected to include improved symptom control, quality of life and satisfaction with care.
