Palliative Care Evidence Review Service (PaCERS)
PaCERS has been developed as a rapid review service, funded by Welsh Government, to support professionals and other decision-makers working in palliative care.
The importance of relating clinical practice more closely to evidence is recognised by health and social care professionals and commissioners. However, a lack of time is often a significant obstacle, especially when it comes to locating, reading and assessing relevant literature.
Established in 2015, PaCERS is a unique service that responds to urgent and clinically-driven calls for evidence. Our aim is to support healthcare professionals and other decision-makers within the remit of palliative care.
Rapid Reviews are conducted within 8-10 weeks using modified systematic review methods with a highly refined research question.
