Abstract Providing palliative care for people living in residential aged care facilities (RACFs) has become a key focus for many developing countries including Australia [1]. The paper by Connolly et al. [2] raises the question of whether RACFs are operating as de facto hospices for older people in New Zealand. Their two main messages are that: RACF mortality is high; and training and resources in this sector should reflect this.
