Aims & rationale/Objectives: To determine the efficacy of care delivery to palliative care patients by GPs.

Implications: Training in the core principles of palliative care at all levels is essential to engender appropriate attitudes and skills in all practitioners. Cross-sectoral strategies to engage reluctant GPs may improve their capacity to manage palliative care. Developing a 'safety net' for patients of nonparticipatory GPs is essential.
