Palliative care in nursing homes and own homes: an overview of systematic reviews: protocol for an overview of systematic reviews - project description
Palliative care is an active treatment, care and nursing for patients with incurable disease. The Norwegian Institute of Public Health has been commissioned by the Ministry of Health and Care Services to provide evidence on the effects of palliative care provided at nursing homes and at home. This summary of reviews aims to provide an evidence base on how effective palliative care is for the patients and their relatives.
We will define criteria for selecting relevant studies. We will carry out systematic literature searches. Two researchers will first evaluate the titles and summaries of the identified research articles against the selection criteria. Then, two researchers will evaluate the full text of all studies considered relevant after reviewing titles and abstracts. We will collect and analyze data from the selected reviews and assess their methodological quality. We will assess our confidence in the results and their transferability to the Norwegian context.
We will present the overall results in a report.
