Systematic improvement of quality of care at the end of life is still scarce.

Through transparency of registered data and regular feedback to the department's units we have been able to encourage the exchange of experiences between the units, provide opportunities for internal and external benchmarking and also prioritize topics for teaching and training. The positive results must be interpreted with caution as this is a... (More)
Systematic improvement of quality of care at the end of life is still scarce. The regional palliative care service in Skåne, which has eight units covering a population of almost 1.3 million inhabitants, has systematically used the Swedish Register of Palliative Care (SRPC, http://www.palliativ.se/ ) for care development. 9 out of 12 of the indicators improved significantly in 2014 compared to 2013. Through transparency of registered data and regular feedback to the department's units we have been able to encourage the exchange of experiences between the units, provide opportunities for internal and external benchmarking and also prioritize topics for teaching and training. The positive results must be interpreted with caution as this is a non-controlled follow-up. The exact correlation between recorded data and value for the patient is mainly unknown and requires further studies. (Less)
