Factors affecting implementation of complex interventions in end of life care

Factors affecting implementation of complex interventions in end of life care: lessons from implementing person-centred support for family carers across three continents

Will you be attending the 9th World Research Congress of the European Association for Palliative Care, June 9-11, 2016 in Dublin? Don't miss this pre-congress workshop on June 8, 2016, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm.

9th World Research Congress of the European Association for Palliative Care, Dublin 8th-11th June: Symposium

Without understanding the factors that help or hinder implementation of complex interventions into practice, new evidence-based interventions may have little impact on the care of patients and their families.

This pre-EAPC symposium will set the context of implementation science and illustrate main factors affecting implementation by drawing on projects from three continents to implement and test a person-centred Carer Support Needs Assessment Tool (CSNAT) intervention in end of life care.
